Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Winter Market – January 11, 2020, 10a – 1p

Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Winter Market – January 11, 2020,  10a – 1p

Mount Pleasant St Plaza at 17th & Lamont – 10a-1p

Dear Friends of the Mount Pleasant Farmers’ Market:    Our first Winter Market season has started.  Remember the Winter Market hours are shorter, 10a – 1p through March 28th.  We don’t want our vendors to get frostbite……especially when they may be wearing tee shirts & shorts this weekend!  Climate change?  Not good.  Please, no early birds before 10am.

Most of our regular vendors will continue during the Winter Market, with a few exceptions, and there may be a few new Winter-only pop-ups.   Some of the services on the Plaza stage may be limited during the Winter Market….. free bike clinic, parent-child engagement area, Friends of MtP Library cookbook sales, Market & SNAP token sales, and compost collection…. due to weather & temperature.  Music performances may be limited as well.

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

Market Events:

Bike Clinic –  Sorry, no regular Bike Clinic during the Winter Market.   But then the Bike Clinic may pop-up when there are nice days.  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:   No one signed up, figuring it would be too cold.  But maybe someone might pop-up this weekend.   If they do, be sure to support your local musicians at the Winter Market!

Compost – Drop off your veggie kitchen compostables in the bin at the Market table, 10a-12:30p.

Please start to thaw frozen compost before you leave home.  Please check yourself off on the bin lid for each household.  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 needed to help save the world, one banana peel at time….  Contact: MtPFarmersMarket@gmail.com or stop by the Market.
