The first Farmer’s Market is planned for this Saturday at St. Agustin plaza. The debate had been choosing from St. Agustin plaza, Jarvis plaza or St. Peter’s plaza and I am guessing Laredo’s Main Street decided St. Agustin would be most convenient.
Regular readers know I have been attending or getting reports of the planning process for establishing a steady participation from local growers. There are many partners that are coming together to make a Farmer’s Market possible – not only for the profit of local people but for our increase in healthy choices. It will probably start off small and stay a little small because the cosecha (harvest) is almost done for this area. That doesn’t mean there won’t be plenty of goodies available! Hopefully you will get a chance to stop by and buy fresh, buy local 🙂
PS: Don’t ask me why there hasn’t been more publicity. I’ve only seen a small mention on the Kids Connection show. I have no more comment.
