Wednesday, August 13, 2014

The Lookout Farmers Market will kick off this new market location with a grand opening ceremony and ribbon cuttings on Thursday, Aug. 21 at 6 p.m. at The Crash Pad, located on the Southside, at 29 Johnson St., just off Main St.

Councilman, Chris Anderson, Crash Pad officials, Lookout Farmers Market representatives, the local Neighborhood Association and the local community will attend.

"The Lookout Farmers Market supports and encourages organic and sustainable growing practices by bringing local farmers to their six area markets.

  All farmers and producers participating in the Lookout Farmers Market are located within 100 miles of the market and use sustainable farming practices. The principle of 'know your farmer, know your food,' is the watchword of the Lookout Farmers Market," officials said.

The market will run at The Crash Pad every Thursday evening through November. Locally grown fresh produce, baked goods, grass-fed meats, free ranged eggs, herbs, breads, cakes, pastries, jam, nuts, doggie treats, fresh squeezed lemon aid, herbs, candles, soap, botanicals, art,  jewelry, prepared foods and food carts will be featured as well as weekly entertainment, educational programs, and fun activities for everyone.

The Lookout Farmers Market is accepting SNAP/EBT cards to make organically grown, fresh, local produce more affordable and available to low-income families.
