Last Friday at the Market

This past week we had great weather for the market.  Hartland Farm to School was helping to sell fresh cut herbs grown by the Hartland Farm to School and the Hartland Kidz Klub.

And a brand new vendor showed up out of the blue with totally entertaining and awesome hand painted magnet art.  It is fun for kids of all ages.  Whether you are taking a car ride, sitting in an office, or standing at your refrigerator you will be entertained.  Plus, they are beautiful.


It just goes to show, you never know what awaits you at the market.

Can't wait for this week's Children's Market. Its going to be a good one! We are going to be tie dying so bring your white or buy our market T-shirt. Get ready for salsa making, slip and slide, and more!

And don't forget to bring used kids clothes to donate to our Children's Clothing Swap.  Go home with some great clothes that are brand new to you.

Its all right here at the market.

Have you ever wanted to make your own rain barrel to collect water? Interested in learning?

This week at the market you can learn how to make your very own rain barrel.  You'll be able to talk to someone who has done it before and see a finished product.  We will have tools, instructions, and photos for you to learn from.  You will know everything you need to in order to get started on your won rain barrel project.  The only thing left will be for you to get your hands on a barrel.
