Sweet Blessed Strawberries!


No need to pull out any confession from most, we all agree local strawberries are awesome! These tasty morsels are slowly trickling into our market this weekend - and with a little more sun and luck will be bountiful by Fathers Day. We are excited this year to be pairing up with Shaw’s Ice Cream and offering a delicious strawberry sundae event on June 15th. Mark your calendar, don’t miss this treat!

See you this weekend!

Locally yours,

Shawn DeVree
