It's that time again...please post your yard signs today!

Fall in Love with Cheverly Community Market this Saturday!
Many thanks to all of our terrific Yard Sign Ambassadors for helping to promote Cheverly Community Market. As you know, we are no longer posting yard signs on the public ways (though we do still put up our big signs on Cheverly Avenue, so you'll always know when it's a Market week!) Honestly, we were concerned that we might have lower attendance at the Market since there were fewer signs out. Happily, that was not the case at our first September Market -- we had great response to our request for additional Yard Sign Ambassadors over the past few weeks! We owe a great community-wide awareness to your efforts...thank you. Please help us continue to spread the word and get your yard signs out today!
We have a lot to love -- and a lot to Fall in Love with -- on the eve of autumn at Cheverly Community Market this Saturday! Linganore Vineyards, will be with us again, as will Cakes by Ruthann, Prince George's County Master Gardeners, and all your favorites (and we'll have a new vendor, too!) CPRC will have it's annual Halloween Costume Collection, so find those outgrown kid's costumes and join in the fun. We'll also be celebrating the big news of last week: we are thrilled to finish at #1 in the state of Maryland and #16 nationally in American Farmland Trust's I Love My Farmer's Market contest. Thank you for sharing the love!
Remember, our special Thanksgiving and Holiday Markets application is now available online. If you're a local (defined as within a 100-mile radius of Cheverly) artist or craftsperson, a specialty baker, or a gardener, this is a great opportunity to sell your locally produced work. These two special Markets -- always the biggest of our season -- have featured handmade jewelry, pottery, drawings, blankets, quilted goods, metal work, glassware, handspun alpaca yarn, baking gifts, wreaths, small-batch cosmetics and skincare, and many other unique, beautiful crafts and gift items in addition to an amazing lineup of our regular vendors. The application deadline is October 21, so now's the time to get to work! 
Thanksgiving Market November 23 
Holiday Market December 14 

​(both Markets are 8am to noon in the Community Center)​

Again, many thanks for your continued support -- we're looking forward to a great Market this Saturday, and the opportunity to Fall in Love with Cheverly Community Market all over again!
