Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market – June 9, 2018

Dear Friends of Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market:

 

Maybe a bit of rain this weekend, but don’t let a couple of drops keep you away from 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 can only get better if you support it.  Don’t let Best World AND Don Juan’s get replaced.  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:

 

Bike Clinic – Our volunteer bike technicians will help you solve all your bike problems.  Come learn & volunteer.
