May 27 at the Market: PETTING ZOO, WOO!

We are super psyched to have Pine Hill Farm’s petting zoo at market this Saturday! This is their second year with us in a row…dare we call it a tradition?

It’s FOOD TRUCK time, too! Mothership Gourmet will be serving up breakfast for market goers. This is some tasty food, people. Order up!

Peter Blanchette will be keeping us well entertained with his gorgeous music all day long, and of course we’ll have free coffee for you, provided by our sponsor, Shelburne Farms Coffee Roasters of Easthampton! Oh – and it’s National Grape Popsicle Day on Saturday! Who knew? So of course, in addition to all the great flavors Crooked Stick is bringing (see below) she will also have plenty of grape.
