Celebrate Fresh Fruits & Vegetables This Sat., July 28 at the North City Farmers’ Market Vegetapalooza…AND vote for NCFM in America’s Favorite Farmers Markets Contest
Because this summer has been so challenging for so many farmers, now is as good a time as any to express our appreciation for all they do to make it possible for us to eat fruits and vegetables. So, come on out to thank our farmers who grow the foods we eat THIS SATURDAY, July 28, at Vegetapalooza, the North City Farmers’ Market’s celebration of fresh fruits and vegetables and other good food and crafts.
Also on the schedule for this week will be live music courtesy of Ragged Blade Band, children’s activities brought to us by the Magic House, face painting, a salsa-making contest, and chances to win fresh pies.
Although most of us are hunkering down and staying indoors to avoid the heat wave this week, the forecast for Saturday suggests that it’ll be the best day to get out and enjoy the great outdoors. With a forecast of 79 degrees for the market’s opening at 9 a.m., it’ll be downright pleasant at Crown Square in the heart of Old North St. Louis.
