A Message from your Market Manager
Thanks for your cheers of support as we walked the St. Johns Parade route last Saturday. We appreciate everyone who visited us at the Bazaar, asked questions about the upcoming season, signed-up to receive the newsletter or volunteer and told us just how excited they are for opening day of the market, on June 2nd.
I’d like to give a special thanks to the St. Johns Farmers Market Board for all of the hard work they have been putting in during the off-season, and their coordination of the parade and Bazaar set-up. ~ Gentiana Loeffler, Market Manager
We could use folks to help behind the scenes and in preparation for opening day. We’re moving from our winter storage to the POD this Saturday morning at 8 am. Meet us at St. Johns Storage on Lombard St to lend a hand, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
