It's time to get those yard signs out!

We certainly missed sharing this past Saturday morning with all of you -- three weeks seems like a long time without 
​We hope that you enjoyed some market-related activities this weekend, and ​w
e are eager to get back to Cheverly Community Market this Saturday to celebrate the final month of our regular 2013 season...what a great year it's been! We have all of you to thank for making that possible. 

Please show your support and help us spread the word about our final regular season Markets of 2013 by putting your yard signs out tonight. ​We'd love to see hundreds of Market signs on lawns throughout town this week (we've given them out, so we know it's possible!)

A week out and the weather for October 12 looks much more seasonable than it has been this weekend: cloudy, with a high of 73 (and a low the night before of 48). The morning will certainly be chilly and autumnal, perfect for our outdoor Market. There are 26 vendors, community groups and musicians scheduled -- some longtime Cheverly Community Market favorites and a few brand new (to us) -- it's going to be another great mix of the best locally produced goods around. St. Ambrose Men's Club is hosting Oktoberfest from 11am to 5pm just down the hill from the Market -- it's Cheverly's very own version of the biggest festival in the world, and we're looking forward to this very special event. 
​As you shop, m
ake sure to stop by the big green Market tent this Saturday. Meet our board members and share your thoughts on the Market with us (we want to know!)
​ You can also purchase Cheverly Community Market gift certificates in any denomination -- great gifts for your Market friends -- as well as our resuable logo bags (just $2 each or three for $5)!​

Throughout the week, we'll post all sorts of news and highlights on our blog
 (as well as Facebook and Twitter)
, so visit us often (and share your Market blog posts with your customers!) We also highlight seasonal recipes, tips and techniques on Pinterest so that 
 can make the most of 
r market purchases. If you haven't perused our Market photos on flickr lately, we invite you to take a look
​ -- it's fun to see how the Market has grown since 2008!​

Remember, our special Thanksgiving and Holiday Markets application is now available online. The application deadline is October 21, and we'll have a table copy of the complete guidelines (as well as a few hard copies of the application itself) at the big green Market tent this Saturday.

Again, many thanks for being part of Cheverly Community Market -- we're looking forward to a great Market this Saturday, and we love spending our mornings with you!
