Tom Baldwin with New Starts Farm is coming back from summering at his farm in New York. He's bringing fall hardy mums, herbs in pots and possibly onions, gourds and leeks.
Last week, Crystal met Al Pong at his farm in Fulton, MD. Al will be bringing Asian Pears, Persimmon Trees, Gogi Berries, Prickly Pear Cactus and some of his large fragrant, flowering plants. BUBBLES! Michelle Burns with Mystic Water Soap will bring her amazing bubble machine and bubble wands in addition to her hand-made soaps and beauty products. We are happy to report that Joe and Jo-Anne Romano harvested Honey at Golden Leaf Farm earlier this month. They'll be bringing honey sticks for the kids and a sampling of the first harvest of wine grapes from their vineyard. (There are only two vineyards in Prince George's County -- they're one!) Nicole Sylver of Sylver Spoon is happy to offer a discount again on pre-ordered cupcakes: $2.00 per cake with a 4 cupcake minimum. Same flavors: Red Velvet, Chocolate Chunk, Vanilla cupcakes with choice of Cream Cheese, Chocolate and Vanilla Buttercreams. The Toppings Bar will include rainbow sprinkles, gummy worms, chopped nuts, coconut and Oreo cookie chunks. To pre-order, call her at 202-492-1480 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Just in from Melanie and the Methodist Church: enjoy ROOIBUS TEA (a red tea) and BLUEBERRY iced teas in addition to the fantastic organic fair/free trade coffee that the church offers at every Market. Both teas will be lightly sweetened, CAFFEINE FREE and full of antioxidants and healthy alternatives to overly-sweetened fruit juices.

We are so very grateful to everyone who supports the Market. This is truly a community effort, and we rely on many, many people to make each Market a success. We're especially thankful this week to all the volunteers who came early and stayed late to set up in the gym. And thanks, too, to the town for its assistance in logistics. We definitely thought twice (or more) about holding a Market during a tropical storm, but the support that the people of Cheverly demonstrated today makes it all worthwhile.
New photos are up on our flickr page. Get ready -- our first KidMarket is just two weeks away!
