Getting The Word Out.

This Saturday stands the chance to be the biggest market yet. If that sounds familiar. it's because we've said this for the past two markets and been right both times. Folks the market is going very well, we've added new growers, new food vendors and the artists are bringing in new work that is outstanding, it's a great time for the Downtown Art and Farmers Market.

Some things to look for:
        New growers-Jimmy Harden, the Juicy Lucy ladies, Sherry Pullen with her produce.
        Look for the "Locally Grown by Me" signs our folks have, they'll tell you what they grew  themselves,and how they grew it.
         Fresh roasted coffee beans
         More consumables, breakfast items, lunch and cold beverages and snacks.
         The stalwarts, the anchors, folks like Amanda from Crazy Hoe Farms, Cal from Apple Country, the Thiel family with Sunburst farms.
          The market booth with Justin, Laura, Gerron and Olivia, wonderful plants, markets bags, calendars and information, stop by and say hello.

Some things that gets asked every market is where does the produce come from, is it local, how was it grown? Folks just ask the vendor, look for the signs, be involved with the information available. Our growers are proud of their products and will share any info they have.

So everyone, please mark your calendars for the 10th of August, this Saturday at 19th and Buddy Holly, 9am to 3pm the Lubbock Downtown Farmers Market will be bringing food and fun to Lubbock.
