The new year is upon us. Before long it will be time for the market to open for the 2014 season. Opening day is Saturday, May 10.
We’ll be raffling off 3 ‘almost new’ bicycles at the market, on Saturday, August 10. These bikes are really beautiful. Tickets will cost $5 each. When we have sold 100 tickets we’ll close the raffle.
All the money will go to buy bicycle parts like tubes, tires, brakes, etc. for the Pedal Power Project – a very worthwhile project which rehabs used bikes which are given to refugee families.

On Saturday, August 10, you’ll have a chance to savor the flavor of a variety of heirloom tomatoes from 10:00 am until the tomatoes are gone.
Be sure to stop and taste the different varieties, then vote for your favorite. There is no charge. All of the heirlooms are donated by the farmers and vendors at the market.Reprinted from the August 10, 2013 issue of News from the St. Matthews Farmers’ Market
