Unusual Vendor
Over the past few years we have had a few vendors selling unusual items but today we have someone planning to sell compost which I hear is some pretty good SH-T.
I promise that I don't make this sh-t, stuff, up.

Another nice day.
Geezes Two weeks in a row with nice weather for the Farmers Market. That is a record for this year. Vendors start setting up about 1:00 pm and stay until 6;00 pm. However if you want some of Marge's baked goods you got to get the buy 4:45. She is usually sold out by then.

Community Health Center joining market this week
The Community Health Center of Franklin County, Montague City, will be providing free health care information and doing blood pressure checks at the August 11th Great Falls Farmers Market located at the corner of Avenue A and 2nd Street in Turners Falls in celebration of National Health Week

The second week of August each year is dedicated to recognizing the service and contributions of Community, Migrant, Homeless and Public Housing Health Centers in providing access to affordable, high quality, cost-effective health care to medically vulnerable and underserved people in the U.S. This year's commemoration is special because 2010 also marks the 45th Anniversary of the creation of the National Health Centers.

You can still get there.
The Gill/Montague Bridge has gone one way but the market is still at the corner of 2nd and Avenue A. If you are coming or going from any direction besides route 2 then the one way bridge will have no effect on you getting to the market. If you are coming from the Gill side then you will have to go home over the White bridge and cut through Greenfield. If you come to the market as far away as Erving, which I know folks do, then you will have to go home via Millers Falls.
Besides that it will be business as usual at the market with fresh local produce, eggs, grass feed beef, baked goods, fresh breads, crafts and a chair massage.

good Weather for a change???
Can this really be happening. A Wednesday market with no rain forecast for this afternoon.

It has rained on 6 of the previous 8 markets and another day it was so hot no one came out and Marge's famous sticky buns were real sticky.
Wonder how many vendors show up today? Stop by and find out.

Bucking Bull Farm Returns
A few words from Bucking Bull Farm.

Great to be back!
Thank you to all the grassfed beef enthusiasts! Bucking Bull farm will continue to bring meat, eggs, and veggies throughout the season. We have Hereford and Jersey (which some prefer for its yellow fat and flavor) all raised on pasture land free of chemicals. Although not certified we operate on organic principles. Our beef comes frozen and packaged for ease of cooking without icky styrofoam. Most steaks come two per pack
Here's a sampling of our products, prices subject to vary:

Ground approx.90% comes in 1lb, 1.5lb, and 2lb tubes - lb makes 4 patties $4/lb
With bone - beef short ribs 8 for $5, Porterhouse and T-bone $12/lb
Boneless ribeye $8/lb Sirloin steak $6
Sirloin tips and Kabobs for grilling $7
Liver steak $3

We also have steamship rounds and can cater your party with our homemade smoker using your meat of choice (chicken, pig, ribs, beef)

Surprise or two
If the weather turns out to be nice the Market might have a surprise or two for Wednesday, June 9 th and Sunday June 13th. Along with a great assortment of plants from many vendors, in season produce, Marge's famous sticky buns, Skinny Man's homemade breads, Dawn's Crafts, Firefly's egg, and Peter's jams we could have entertainment and chair massages. Yes you read that correct.
But you won't know unless you stop by.
