Who's coming to Cheverly Community Market this Saturday? The big lineup (July 27 edition.)

We are looking forward to a gorgeous high summer morning on Saturday -- it's an ideal day to join Cheverly Community Market and celebrate Maryland's Buy Local Challenge Week. Bring your friends, neighbors, and family for a terrific morning of the best local food, craft, and music. We can't wait to share everything with you!

Make sure to visit the big green Market tent to buy a Cheverly Community Market reusable shopping bag ($3), a gift certificate (in any denomination), visit with our Board members, or peruse the Maryland's Best Governor's Buy Local Cookout. Don't forget to vote for Cheverly Community Market in the American Farmland Trust America's Favorite Farmer's Markets contest by pledging to spend $10 a week at the Market. And make sure to say farewell to Operations Manager Liz O'Leary and welcome our Interim Operations Manager, Diane Beedle! The Board and Communications Manager Kathryn Andrews will miss Liz dearly, but we're very excited about bringing Diane in!

Finally, some people have asked about the Cheverly Exchange Trivia Contest. Here's a note from moderator Rachel Dabney-Rice:

We started our Cheverly Trivia Contest at the beginning of the summer and since then we've have about 50 new members join. Some of those new people have been wondering what this Trivia thing is all about. So here's an update:

The Cheverly Exchange decided to team up with some of the vendors who come to the Cheverly Community Market as a way to promote some friendly competition and the Market at the same time! The Friday before each Community Market this summer we will post a Cheverly related question and the first person to reply to all will win the prize that week. We've had quarts of strawberries from Shlagel Farms, bread & pastries from the Bread Basket, etc. We have prizes like fruit from Benny's Market and cupcakes from Carefree and Classic Bake Shoppe coming up before future markets. 

This Friday we will post a question at 10am. The first person to 'Reply All' to the question correctly will win a Gift Certificate good for a pair of earrings from Little Peeps Emporium (value up to $12).

We've asked anyone who's already won this summer not to answer as to give others a chance to win too. 

It's all about fun and we hope it entertains and even educates people on Cheverly history, geography and more at the same time!
