Thank You and See You Soon

 A sincere Thank You to all of the vendors and market goers who made this Byrd House season all the more worth it. While we won't be managing what comes after, per say, some of our BHM vendors will be toughing out the winter season to be there each Tuesday, 3-6 PM, for everyone still looking for fresh and local produce throughout the next few months. A few names you can generally expect to be there:

  • Agriberry
  • Bill's Produce
  • The Byrd Farm
  • Deer Run Farm
  • Epic Gardens
  • Faith Farm Foods
  • Mugsy's Dogtown Lounge
  • Tomten Farm
  • Arcangel Creations
Hope to see you around for the Renegade Market.

Just a few photos from last Tuesday evening's potluck dinner.

Last Market 2014: What to expect

As the title of this article says, as well as our website banner, our About Us page, and several Facebook posts, October 28th will be the last Byrd House Market of 2014. Be sure to ask about our Renegade market tomorrow while we all wait for May 2015. Until then, here's what you can expect for us to have in store for tomorrow:

Art Raffles

As you can see from our sidebar text (as well as several Facebook posts), we're raffling off three art-based prizes throughout the day: a winter collage by Dare Boles, a market lithograph by Eliza Askin, and a 1000-piece puzzle by Charley Harper. Tickets will be $1 each, and we'll be having a Buy 2, Get 1 free special.

Potluck Dinner

Some of our vendors are bringing an extra dish just for this market day, and so we'll be hosting a special dinner during the evening hours. Stay and sit for a proper meal made by your local farmers and vendors, and we'll send-off wishing each other a happy winter season. Look forward to something special from Byrd Farm, Faith Farm, Serene Suds, Got Salsa, etc.

(something like this, except less ridiculous and more realistic)

And as always, we'll have many activities just for the kids of the market:

-Apple-tonging with Emily
-Storytelling with Caroline
-Corn-hole games
etc. etc. etc.

Have a look, and have some fun.
