The Countdown Has Begun!
October 21 is the last market day for the 2012 season — that means only three market days left! Time to think like squirrels: stock up for the winter, for holidays, and for gift giving, though we're not sure how much gift giving squirrels actually do . . .
SALE ON ABFM GROCERY/TOTE BAGS:
NOW ONLY $6!
Our 2012 bags at end-of-season prices. Not many left, so scoop 'em up, and remember: they make great gifts! Stop by the ABFM stall at market for our first-ever organic cotton ABFM T-shirts and handy ABFM aprons, as well.
Special SNAP Offer
The ABFM accepts SNAP (Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program) benefits and makes a special offer for SNAP users: ABFM will double the first $10 you spend in SNAP benefits at market. If you decide to spend $15 at market, you'll actually get $25 to spend. [This offer lasts until we distribute the allotted $250 for the season.] Come to the ABFM stall for details.
Community Events Board at ABFM
Anyone is welcome to post a flyer or notice about a local community event on the Community Events Board at the corner of Pearl Street and Windsor Avenue, on the WAC Library lawn. (Please, no business cards or flyers, work solicitations, et al.; market staff will remove any inappropriate postings.) All notices will be removed and recycled at the end of each market day.
