Market Update

Market News March 16 2010 Market

If you missed the last post, the Lloyd Farmers Market is now a year-round farmers market. We originally planned to finish up on March 16th and re-open in June. However, vendors and customers alike wanted to stay open. Who am I to get in the way? Thank you all for the great support. Be sure to tell your friends and co-workers.
