What a wonderful, sweet early summer opening last Sunday! A sincere and deep-felt "Thank You" to all who joined the moment making it the best market opening day we've seen. We know we all have so much to be grateful for living in such a spring-point community which you can see growing by just being a part of it. Priceless! Philmont was hopping - including a great art show by Free Columbia, a free Puppet play on the Greene - huge 10ft puppets, brunch going on at four restaurants, kayaks and flat boats out on the lake, and breakfast sandwiches at the market available at the Philmont Market & Cafe stand.
Big steps for a little upstate village coming back from the edge.
How did the market do last Sunday?
Sunday's success is all about YOU turning up, being counted and making the difference. We got a "Like" from a Time Magazine assistant - so keep those Likes going please.
Common Hands Farm Project reported DOUBLE SALES.
Delsia Hilton Baking SOLD OUT - every fruit pile walking off the market stand.
Schober Farm - ALL SMILES for free-roaming antibiotic-free Devon Beef sales - new customers, increased sales, more farming conversations.
Philmont Market & Cafe Co-Op - SOLD OUT of breakfast burritos and FREE COFFEE - looking forward to bringing local cheese next week. Thank you Philmont Market & Cafe Co-op! Visit with the Co-op stand this Sunday - your continued support will help get the Co-op store open.
Marsh Meadow Farm - VERY HAPPY with sales as a new joining farm - looking forward to harvesting for next week. So are we - thank you Marsh Meadow Farm!
Hand Made Bowls - Super support, great response to Tom's craft demonstration, very satisfactory sales, looking forward to coming back for the next market!
Hawk Studio - hand made leather belts sold to returning customers, conversations started - will be back as a demonstrating craft vendor - especially as the market fee goes a long way to making it possible for local crafters to be a part of the market.
Furse Photos - folk are buying non-Columbia County jig-saw puzzles - Fire Island took the lead this market, along with post cards of our favorite dogs, historic houses in Columbia County, and of course beautiful note cards of some of the prettiest garden flowers.
Market Manager - Sebastian - "Wow, this was the best opening day we've had - so great to see." "I've got lots of new ideas talking with everyone and listening to their thoughts and support."
That's just a glimpse of what took place last market. You'll have to come over to get the full picture of this very special little market taking place every Sunday in Philmont. Hang out in the open cafe, absorb the sweet energy, and please, feel free to be a part of this market growing step by step!
SEE YOU NEXT SUNDAY - SAME PLACE, SAME TIME,
HOPEFULLY SAME SWEET COMRADESHIP
