We would like to thank everyone who stopped at the market on Saturday for helping make our grand opening a great success. The market was full of shoppers from before 8am right up until closing at noon. Market vendors gave away several heavy canvas Person County Farmers Market shopping bags and two boxes of produce, canned and baked goods.
We received this from Susan Byerly, one of the produce box winners: “When I got home, I felt as if it was Christmas time. I was so excited to open my gift. We stewed the squash & onions as part of our next meal. The flavors were amazing. There was no need to add any sugar since the squash was naturally delicious. Our box also included carrots. My two boys love walking around eating their carrots and I’m equally delighted since I know they were organically grown right here in Person County. I look forward to shopping the Market this summer but am most excited about the meals to come! It’s a win, win, win for sure! Support your local farmers, eat healthy and indulge in delectable food.” Susan sent these photographs.
Again, we would like to thank all of our customers, those who have been with us since the tents and heat of the parking lot from last year to those who came by for the first time on Saturday. Please come back and see us again. While we want you for our customers, we more importantly, want you to be our friends.
