A Public Health Order was issued December 4, 2020, making non-essential food vendors unable to participate in the remaining Farmers Markets of the year - so just like that, our Christmas season has disappeared.

 

This has been the biggest blow in a year already filled with challenges.

 

We know we are not alone in this boat, that so many people are experiencing this – and worse.  We count our blessings every single day and are thankful for so much.

 

In that spirit, we have started an initiative to bring together as many local vendors as possible (crafters and food vendors alike) to work in harmony supporting each other.

 

Check out this amazing list of local vendors and businesses and then choose to support local in any way you can – most vendors have offered deals and discounts as their way of saying THANK YOU for being there for us… because we’re all in this together…
