From email announcement:
4th Tuesday in July…
still warm after all these weeks. Yes. But isn’t it nice to know we can count on all the vendors who sell cold stuff!! Limeade and Lemonade, Iced Coffee, naturally flavored Fruit Ices, chilled Aloe Vera Juice, frozen grass fed meats and poultry, cool cheeses, naturally cool and delicious peaches and berries, cucumbers and crispy salad greens and herbs, and the yummiest of deserts. Everything you need to make cool summer dishes, creamy refreshing smoothies – feeling good, and so good for you! Gotta be there! byrdhousemarket.blogspot.com – Market Map and Product Search under “For Market Goers” tab…
We have a Bike Rack
Thanks to “Richmond Rides” we have a bike rack located near the uphill entrance to the market. Matthew picked it up and set it in place over the weekend. Parking good.
And WE HAD A FABULOUS Cooking as a 2nd Language Class – 15 sous chefs to Elicet’s mastery – Tamales con Pollo – so smooth, savory, delicious and the perfect large group activity. It felt like a big family tradition right before our eyes… Soon to come… Ethiopian, English, Korean, more from Central and South America – it’s all coming. 5 of the 15 were from one family visiting from out of town. What a great way to spend a Saturday morning. All ages welcome. Pictures and recipe will be posted on EatGoodGrowGreat.blogspot.com soon.
Encouraging energy alternatives that will help us preserve what mother earth is made of, representatives of the Sierra Club will be at the market this week. www.sierraclub.org
A $1 raffle ticket gets you a shot at $33.83 in Byrd Farm goodies and supports Byrd House Market! Every week all season long! We have had a happy winner every week – it’s a great deal and your pantry will love you for it.
For every $10 you spend at the featured vendor of the week, you get 1 minute of chair massage with Robin Raver! Different vendor every week! Check the chalkboard for this week’s vendor. (Last week Robin tore into the boulders in my neck and shoulder blade muscles so hard she made me wish I could cry in front of everyone. She said “you may not like me now, but in a couple days I will be your goddess! Lucky for us both as soon as I stood up I wanted to fall to my knees and a week later the boulders are pebbles and I can turn my head!) So since you’re going to spend $20-30 anyway, go get a massage. Or not. I’m just sayin…
