Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market – April 28, 2018

Dear Friends of Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market:


Spring is making another effort.  It should be a wonderful spring morning for the Farmers’ Market.  See you at the Market.  Thanks for shopping at the Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market, but PLEASE SUPPORT our local full-time groceries during the rest of the week, especially Best World Supermarket.  It is a treasure to have a small, full service supermarket in MtP, but you must shop & support it.  It will only get better if you support it.  Don’t let something worse replace Best World AND Don Juan’s.  Come talk to us at the Farmers’ Market table on the Plaza stage to learn more about the community’s efforts to support Best World.


Market Events:


Market Music: Pedro on guitar in the morning, followed by Masipula on kalimba.


Bike Clinic — Our volunteer bike technicians are taking a break this week, back next week, May 5th.


Tin Lizzy Mobile Boutique will be back at the market this week with a truck load of brand new ethically sourced women’s apparel and accessories for spring.
