Thanks to everyone who came out to show your support on Opening Day!We had over 3,000 shoppers come to the market last Saturday and not a drop of rain fell, although it threatened.|
The market got off to a great start and this Saturday will be no different. Alderman's Greenhouse & Nursery, Dancing Light Ranch, and ProFarm Produce all start this Saturday and Crista the Face Painter will be here too!
The weather is supposed to be sunny and we look forward to seeing you at the market!
Bring Your Mom to the Market by Caryn Servis, HFM Volunteer|
believe most of us with mothers, grandmothers, and special women in our
lives like to honor them 365 days a year. I also know that for most of
us, the next few days will be a mad rush to find the perfect way to say
"Happy Mother's Day!".
The Hollywood Farmers Market would like to take some of the pressure off by providing you with a few suggestions:
1. Bring your mother to the market! The
Hollywood Farmers Market is a great Saturday morning outing for the
entire family. Munch on prepared foods and baked goods while enjoying
the sounds of the Cafe Cowboys. Hold mom's bags while she shops.
2. Give your mom Hollywood Farmers Market tokens! If
mom can't make it this weekend, use your debit card at the Information Booth to purchase wooden tokens in $5 increments. Tokens can be used to purchase any product
from your favorite market vendor and are good all season long. They make great gifts!
3. Shop for Mother's Day gifts at the market! Fresh-cut flowers from Herr's Family Farm will make her day. So will jams, vegetable starts, nursery items, and many other gifts you can find at the Hollywood Farmers Market.
4. Make a seasonal menu featuring products from the market! Whether
it's brunch made with farm-fresh eggs, locally made cheeses and
delicious veggies or dinner featuring hormone-free pork or succulent
seafood, the creative cook in you will find the perfect dish. Choose
ingredients from over 40 market vendors. Children love to assist with
cooking too, so bring along your sous-chef!
Whatever you decide
to do, we hope you will include the Hollywood Farmers Market in your
Mother's Day weekend. We'd like to wish you, and the mothers of the
Hollywood Farmers Market, a relaxing and enjoyable Mother's Day!
