If you missed our Heritage Day activities last week, don’t worry about it. We all did because of the rain, so we’re doing it again this Saturday. Take a look at the list below to see when the different demonstrations are scheduled, and stop by to see some of our members sharing their hand-crafting skills.
O’Daniels Farm will be back at the market this Saturday after taking last weekend off for a wedding in the family, and they’re bringing their first big flush of fall greens, including kale, collards, swiss chard, turnip greens, and a variety of oriental greens.
Fall is in the air. You can expect to see a good selection of pumpkins at the market beginning this week and colorful mums and asters for fall planting along with winter squash and fresh greens.
Join us this Saturday for great local, seasonal food and stay to enjoy our celebration of practical skills with your family, friends, and neighbors.
See you there!
Heritage Day at the SKY Farmers Market
This Saturday September 15th
Due to last Saturday’s weather, Heritage Day at the SKY Farmers Market was postponed until this weekend. Nobody wanted to miss this special event where SKY Market members take the opportunity to share some of their hand-crafting skills with our local community.
SKY Market members will give live demonstrations of a variety of practical and traditional crafts and skills, including pottery, basket-making, spinning wool, making natural dyes, polymer clay jewelry, and milling corn.
We’ll also be giving away our free SKY Market t-shirts for kids.
This will be a great opportunity for families to learn about our rural heritage, for farmers to share some of their practical skills, and for everyone to enjoy a fun-filled morning at the SKY Farmers Market.
We hope to see you there.
