Happy Thanksgiving, friends! Well, it seems many of our market vendors are taking advantage of the holiday to enjoy with family.
Each year, the Northshore Food Bank distributes over 1 million pounds of food to the residents of St. Tammany and Washington parishes. This year the Food Bank saw an increase of more than 110% in the number of individuals and families they serve due to COVID.
For the price of a movie ticket, $13.90, you can provide food to an animal in need for an entire month. Together we can make Thanksgiving Day special for a homeless dog or cat. Your special gift will give an innocent animal the second chance and loving family they have always deserved.
The veggies are pouring in; the greens they are a-comin’! Natalie boasts broccoli and Brussels sprouts. Sam has baby kale (so nice to chop up and add to any soup, especially if it came from a can.) Nick has his awesome sweet potatoes. I wait for them every fall; they are so flavorful.
Here we are, precious friends, tippy toeing into November! I’m looking forward to a Happy Wednesday for you gorgeous blue skies, Farmers’ Market musicians sharing lively music so you can sit and enjoy the great food under the pavilion.
Well, friends, here we are at the end of October and another tropical system threatens to disturb our market! Nevertheless, in true market tradition and weather permitting, we will be there with tasty food and great music.
