NATIONAL FARMERS MARKET WEEK, AUG. 3–9

Aug. 3–9 is National Farmers Market Week! This is the 15th annual recognition of the important role that farmers markets play in the agricultural and food economy. Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack said, "Farmers markets play a key role in developing local and regional food systems that support family farms and help grow rural economies." BRAVO for the role that farmers markets play in relocalizing our farm and food system!


FOR THE JUNIOR MEMBERS

Nearly every week, Kennett creates a great activity for young children (approx. ages 3–9). From mason bee houses to corn husk dolls to fish made from fence pickets, he has quite a bag of tricks! Find him — and fun! — at the picnic table on the West Acton Citizens' Library back lawn, starting at 11am most Sundays.
