IT'S BYBTM DAY!
Bring Your Reusable Bag
to Market for an ABFM discount!

Many of you already bring your own reusable totes to market for your purchases; thank you for doing that! We want to encourage everyone to "BYOB" to market, so today you get a little reward for doing so. It's better for everyone to use fewer plastic and paper bags, so come to the ABFM stall, show us your reusable bag, and get $1 in Market Moolah to spend at market today.

And while you're there, maybe you want to pick up our 2015 ABFM bag — it's a large, organic cotton canvas bag with both internal and external pockets and heavy-duty handles. Super useful for groceries and a million other things. It easily accommodates a laptop, your lunch, your comfy shoes, and the book(s) you're reading!


National Farmers Market Week
Aug. 2–8

In recognition of  National Farmers Market Week, Aug. 2–8, we want to note (as our friends at the Farmers Market Coalition have set out), the many reasons why farmers markets are more than just places to find fresh, local food. Across the country, evidence shows that farmers markets are significantly improving the health and well-being of their communities, local/regional economies, and the environment. And as support for farmers markets continues to grow, so will the ways in which their communities prosper. See an infographic on the impacts of farmers markets here.

SHOW YOUR ABFM LOVE: stop by the ABFM stall on Sunday and pick up an "I LOVE My Farmers Market" sticker!
