Strawberry Festival June 21st

It’s strawberry season locally so be sure to get to the market early so you won’t miss out on these sweet & juicy jewels that come only for a short period of time. Purchase strawberries direct from a local grower and support our small farms.  This Saturday, June 21, the market will host a Strawberry Festival that has been gaining in popularity each year.  The events tent, sponsored by BELD, will be up and there will be tables and chairs provided for our visitors to sit and enjoy freshly made strawberry shortcake with real whipped cream created by the folks at Homestyle Caterers with strawberries from C.N. Smith Farm.  The Farmer’s Garden will have an entire tent filled with their strawberries fresh picked and ready to take home.  Other vendors will be creating their own strawberry-themed specialties in celebration of this fleeting season.  Live guitar and sax music by Aaron Belyea.
