Check out some photos from this weekend’s market. It was Military Appreciation Day.
The Bureau of Environmental Health Services, Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services, will conduct a workshop for producers of foods sold at farmers’ markets, at four different locations. The focus will be on regulations and exemptions, approved sources, food safety and sanitation, and processing of non-exempt foods. Please see Food Safety Workshops for locations, times, and contact information. Our Get Healthy De Soto Director has attended one of these classes before and says they are an excellent source of information for vendors.
Trivia Night was a great success due to leadership of chairperson Sarah Warncke and her dedicated committee. Bruce Valle provided all questions and served as the Judge for the evening. (If you want to skip the corny jokes next year, maybe you should volunteer to be the judge.) We had 12 twelve teams participate, 6 sponsors, and 17 items in the silent auction. In addition, Vendor Tim Gagnon donated a hand carved welcome Bear which was used in the raffle. (Speaking of corny jokes…) believe me, it was a “bear” to get to the bowling alley.
A huge thanks to all sponsors, gifted raffle items and those who attended this fundraiser for the market. It was a great beginning for the 2013 season. See you at the market!
