The New Leaf Market Tour brochures are available now at the store. You can also look at the online version.
We are lining up the vendors that will be here. The selection is always varied with some of the regulars and several new vendors this year. I’ll be listing them as the weeks get closer.
If you know someone who has a little hobby or business and wants to test the market, ask them to get in contact with us. They can bring a small table with an umbrella, a stand out in the open or a fancy tent. Most are welcome although we try not to have too many of the same items. We don’t charge the vendors. This is just a way to let folks know what is available and to support local small business. Of course, it doesn’t hurt that they bring all their friends and relatives out to see the farm and what we have.
My friend and neighbor is planning to bring her horse over for petting and picture taking and we’ll still have the hayrides. There are lots of keets this year (baby guineas) and the pullets we bought in April will hopefully be laying large eggs by then. There will be exhibitions of wool carding and maybe some spinning. Some folks crocheting and the Camellia Garden Circle selling garden gloves for the 4-H fundraiser. Wood carvings, handmade soap and jewelry, fall vegetables and nuts are just a few of the many things to see and buy. And, of course, our jellies, jams, cakes, lamb and goat. Johnston’s will be here with sandwiches and drinks.
