Bring 'em back!
ABFM is instituting a take-back program for containers used by vendors. Just bring to the ABFM table at market any (clean) containers you've acquired during your ABFM shopping. We'll make them available to our vendors for re-use when appropriate.
MARKET HOURS: 10am–2pm
Drawing for Free Market Items!
This Sunday is the last week for a chance to win our drawing for a grocery bag full of wonderful ABFM produce and products, generously donated by our vendors.
Pick up your ticket this Sunday between 1:00 and 1:45pm; the drawing will take place at 1:50pm, just before the close of market. One per family, please; you must be present to play and to win. Two winners will be chosen — one could be you!
