The hard-working producers at the Codrington Farmers’ Market are bringing an amazing array of produce every Sunday (10-2). We can’t list everything, but here are some crowd pleasers: corn, potatoes, field tomatoes, beans, cukes, eggplant, beets, carrots, and kohlrabi. There are also heavenly baked goods, gorgeous flowers and plants, along with Empire Cider’s new Summer Sipper – fresh local strawberries and mint blended into their lovely regular cider. Delicious!
Lunch, anyone? Lots of choices: Tina’s wraps and The Bakery’s Peameal Bacon on a Bun and Quesadillas will certainly work. Plus, the Brighton Lions’ Club serves up hot dogs, local burgers, and regular or sweet potato fries.
If you would rather get a “take out” and eat at home, be sure to visit Kingsholm Farms and The Bakery for frozen meals. Or, check out the sausage and cheese offerings from Glover’s and Century Game Park.
This is the last Sunday of the month and that means the Artisan Marketplace will be happening – outside this time. Look for Anne with crabapple juice, Bark Buddies, Urban Gardens, Dotty’s Gourmet Sauce, True North Day Lilies, and many more. Dan Buchanan, the History Guy, will also be attending with his new book.
Live music will be provided by the fabulous Busker Brothers, and Ian and Sharon Graham. The local 4H group is fundraising to pay for supplies for their next project. Come out and enjoy a Slushy in support of Codrington’s 4H Life Skills Club. It’s just $2 a cup, which will go into their SLUSH FUND. The Next Life Skills Project is PIE BAKING – to start in the fall. Talk to Ashleigh if you know a young person who would like to start making pies.
The Library is also open, if you want to “chill” away from the hustle and bustle (yes, it’s air conditioned). Find a picnic bench, grab something to munch on, see James for lemonade or 4H for a slushy, and enjoy the day. Thank you for supporting our little market. We are truly grateful.
