For those of you who visit our market with your dogs, know that there will be a few things for your dogs to do! We will have doggie pools set up for dogs to cool off in, doggie water bowls for them to drink out of, a doggie obedience class (dogs have already signed up for), and lots more doggie things for our favorite doggie customers to do! We also have our Vendor of the Week to highlight with a cooking demo.....and this Saturday it just so happens to be Bracken Brae Farm of Monterey! The cooking demo will consist of what is ready on their farm for produce right now, so bring your taste buds as Sandra Snyder cooks up a storm! And, we will have live fiddle music by our favorite fiddle player, Sarah Hubbard...... So much is happening that it would be a howling shame if you missed it!
