Even though my job as the Market Manager of the Clayton Farmer's Market has slowed way down with the closing of the regular market season, life on the farm still goes. Produce is still harvested (yes, even in the winter), chickens still lay eggs, poultry and beef are processed and artisan foods are still hand-crafted.
This is good news and now we have a winter home for our small farmers and food producers to provide the same high quality foods to their customers. I'm pleased to announce the first Farmer's Winter Market & Bazaar presented by the Clayton Farmer's Market. The Market will be held indoors at The Center of Clayton on Saturday, December 3 from 9:00am to 1:00pm.
I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity, not only to stay connected to the fine folks who participated in our regular Market, but to have access to farm fresh, locally sourced products year round. (All right, I'll admit it. I also really like the hand-crafted chocolate--and other foods too!)
We are also fortunate to have great sponsors for the Clayton Farmer's Winter Market & Bazaar. We wouldn't be able to bring these delicious, locally sourced products to you without their help. Please join me in thanking The Center of Clayton, the City of Clayton, and Straub's Fine Grocers and all the people who work behind the scene to make our Market possible.
So, come on over on Saturday morning and say "Hi" to your old friends at the Market. We're a stop along the road to anywhere!
