Cut out our ABFM ad and bring it to market this Sunday. The after-market drawing will choose the lucky winner of $25 in ABFM Market Moolah to spend at the market! (Winner will be notified by phone.)

MARKET PRODUCE AS STILL LIFE
Village Art, Guest Presenter
Kids can learn the fundamentals of drawing 3-D shapes! Fresh produce from the market will be selected for variety, color, and texture to be our still life.
