We are celebrating Bike to Market this week. It’s an impractical day considering the weather, but the point is still there. Take time to ride a bike or walk to market not only to get the cardio exercise, but also to enjoy the beauty of the world that surrounds you. Come to market and spend your grocery money not just because it’s trendy or festive, but because locally sourced food holds health benefits. Cooking with fresh foods engages you more with your food and you’re more likely to eat better. And let’s face it, it just tastes better.
While you’re at market Saturday, in the rain, you can enjoy music by Paula Snyder. Grab a hot cup of coffee from Bethesda and cinnamon roll from Custom Confections and the rainy day will make you feel like singing… in the rain… just singing in the rain.
Oh and we’re having a CONTEST for the next two weeks! Take a “selfie” with your favorite vendor or product AT market and post on your social media page. Be sure to tag us and put #CDFMselfies in your tag or comment. Then share the phot with your friends and family, get them to share the photo with theirs. The photo with the most likes will win a gift basket. The winner will be chosen August 23rd during Lazy Daze and announced on our social media pages as well as in our newsletter. Get to it! It’s selfie time!
Don’t forget that our market will be closed August 23rd for Lazy Daze so you need to plan your shopping accordingly. We will be open the Tuesday before and after during regular mini-market hours 2 p.m.-6 p.m.
It’s going to be a good day at market. I hope to see you there!
Bethesda Roasting Company is a local coffee roaster with a great variety of roasted coffees. You can buy this coffee both whole bean or ground. This coffee can warm you up served hot or cool you off served iced. And add a flavor or just somce sugar or cream.
While you’re receiving your coffee get Lance to tell you how he got started. It’s a cool story about a man and a coffee roaster. Or if you’re not in the mood for a romance story (ha ha) ask Lance about his family. Raising a house full of boys is a lively and action-filled life full of stories that are sure to entertain.
