The Luck of the Locavores
This Saturday, we are kicking off the St. Patrick’s Day festivities, so put on your green and grab some local meat and potatoes! Fullsteam Brewery will be with us as a guest vendor selling their brew. The Decatur Street Beat Dixieland band will be playing from 10am to 11am, and they promise to throw in some Irish tunes for us.
For the kids, there is a scavenger hunt to find the SDFM leprechaun’s pot of gold. To get your first clue, come to the market’s information tent. Then just follow the rainbow! (There will be seven clues, one for each color of the rainbow - ROYGBIV.)

Opportunity for Local Crafters
We are inviting our local craftspeople to participate in a Craft Cooperative stall during our Saturday morning market! We are looking for a variety of unique handmade products, and we would especially love to include crafts made from locally sourced and/or reclaimed materials. The Cooperative will accept up to 12 members, and 3 members will attend market each week based on an established rotating schedule. Applications are due March 28th. For more information, please visit our website.

Market Elects New Board
This past Wednesday, March 12th, we had our third annual General Membership meeting and elected our Board of Directors for the 2014-2015 market season! Please join me in congratulating our eleven board members: Jenna D’Amore (President), Liz Clore (Vice-President), Judy Thomson (Treasurer), Rhiannon Kincaid (Secretary), David Barrett, Samantha Gasson, Noah Ranells, Carolyn Rose-Seed, Peter Schubert, and Kathryn Spann. And, a big thank you to the board members who served the market this past year.
