Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market – August 17, 2019

Mount Pleasant St Plaza at 17th & Lamont – 9a-1p

Dear Friends of the Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market:  Another delightful morning, sunny, not too hot, a great start to the weekend, see you at the Market.

No plastic – Please bring your own reusable bags for shopping & produce bagging, and reusable containers if you bring compost.

Market Events:

Ward One City Councilmember Brianne  Nadeau will be at the Market 10a-12n to chat with neighbors.

Bike Clinic –  Limited clinic today, a non-bike related injury will keep Aaron from doing too much this weekend, but he will happily assist you as able.  They are always looking for more people who want to help others with their bike maintenance, stop by and talk to us at the Market table.

Music:

9a-11a –  Kurt Bauman – He has been playing guitar for many years with a focus on finger-picking style. He’s been heard at open mikes and the occasional party or song circle, but mostly in his apartment and, when the weather is nice, outdoors in the Mount Pleasant area.  He’s written a few tunes, but mostly likes traditional, old time, folk, a few of his favorites from artists like Paul Simon, Dylan, Beatles, and Grateful Dead and people that nobody has ever heard of.  He’s always happy to get the chance to play for people or meet others who’d like to share their music.

11a-1p – Abigail Hobart – With fiddle, guitar, & vocals she blends her love of traditional music with lively tunes and songs that make you FEEL!

Produce Plus – Eligible customers can pick up Produce Plus checks at participating DC farmers’ markets, and spend those checks on fresh fruits and vegetable with approved market vendors. 

Compost – Drop off your veggie kitchen compostables in the bin at the Market table, 9a-12:30p.  https://compostcab.com/  The Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market is looking for some assistance with compost collection on Saturdays.  Mainly with compost bin transportation, so a vehicle, or bike trailer, etc, would be useful.  Helping in other ways with the Market’s compost collection efforts is also appreciated.  MtPFM Compost Commanders can help save the world, one banana peel at time….  Contact: MtPFarmersMarket@gmail.com or stop by the Market.

Friends of the Mount Pleasant Library will have cookbooks for sale on the Plaza.  Plus their weekly Saturday sale at the Library, 11a-2p. dclibraryfriends.org/mtpleasant/   facebook.com/MountPleasantLibraryFriends/
