Letter: Farmers’ market back in May

Vendors and residence had a great season. This year’s weather was utterly amazing.

The Grand Forks Farmers’ Market vendors and board would like to “shout out” a huge thank you to each and everyone visitor that stopped in to support the growing, creating and baking selection that we offer every season May through October.

Many familiar vendors greeted our customers this season, along with some new faces. The line-up of produce and product that is available was greatly expanded, thanks to the hard work of everyone. It’s a pleasure to be able to offer our patrons a richly rewarding experience on those great sunny Boundary days.

Vendors and residence had a great season. This year’s weather was utterly amazing, allowing our farmers a bounty of produce locally grown right here in Grand Forks!

The unusually warm fall kept the market well supported into the later weeks of October. Many gardens in the areas provided produce into the second week of November—how amazing is that?

This week’s cold snap is certain to announce the arrival of winter.

So? Keep warm and enjoy the season! Before you know it the snow is melting and you’re fondly sorting your seed packets for the 2015 planting.

Vendors are still busy, so keep an eye out at the local Christmas/holiday community sales for familiar faces that meet and great you every Tuesday and Friday 8 a.m. until 1 p.m. during the outdoor market season at Gyro Park

The Grand Forks Farmers’ Market is looking forward to seeing you at Gyro Park next year, beginning May 29.

Sol Alhstraum, Grand Forks Farmers’ Market representative
