Thank You to Our Gracious Neighbors
When the market is humming along, It may not be obvious, but the ABFM has several neighbors who abut the market. They graciously accommodate the pedestrian and car traffic of the market, the noise, the dogs, and the general hubbub only a few feet away from their homes — and still support the ABFM! We extend our appreciation to them, and ask you to respect that their driveways, lawns, and walkways are private property; please don't traverse them, and please keep your pets off of them. Thank you!
Welcome to Lucy Mae!
The spate of new babies in the ABFM family during the past couple of years continues! (Something in the water?) Welcome to the newest member, Lucy Mae, who joined the crew in late May. Congrats to mom and dad, ABFM Coordinator Jennifer Taylor Campbell and Tom Campbell, and big brother Fin!
