Plan to join us Saturday April 1st from 10 am to 2 pm for a POTLUCK LUNCH and a hands on raised bed workshop for all skill levels at the GNB conference center at the Food City shopping center. We’ll talk about planting dates, spacing, interplanting and succession plantings. 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! We are able to offer the workshop free of charge thanks to our FMPP grant from the USDA. The class is limited to 50 people. Please email Michelle Pridgen at independencefarmersmarket@gmail.com to register.

Are you interested in becoming a vendor? Are you a vendor already? If you answered yes to any of these questions, please join us for a potluck lunch on Friday, April 7th at the Grayson National Bank Conference Center from 11 am – 2 pm. Donna Harless from weights and measures will be there to certify scales. If you plan to use a scale at the Market it MUST be certified.

Please feel free to share this information with anyone that may be interested!

Thanks and have a great week!
