It’s 60 degrees and the birds are chirping, Spring really is almost here and I couldn’t be more excited! Our May 11th opening day of the outdoor market will be here before we know it!

We have launched a Go Fund Me! page for the market. We love what we do here in the community and with no large grants this year, we could use some help! Click on the link below if you are able to give and please share with family and friends that may also want to send some love our way! We’ll also be reaching out on Facebook.

Upcoming Events:

Plan to join us THIS Saturday February 17, 9 am to noon for a hands on planning workshop to maximize your vegetable production for all skill levels at the Grayson LandCare/IFM office at 108 Courthouse Street. We’ll talk about planting dates, spacing, interplanting and succession plantings as well as organic pest and disease control. Using information from the best national and local gardeners you’ll learn to apply these techniques to a single raised bed or a full sized market garden. Hope to see you then! The cost is $10 and includes light snacks and the class is limited to 30 people. Please email Michelle Pridgen at independencefarmersmarket@gmail.com to register.
