The Sharon Sprouts Farmers’ Markets are back for another school year! We will have 4 markets during the school calendar year and all proceeds of table sales and the local lunch go to the Farm, Food, and Nutrition Program at Sharon Elementary. The first Sharon Sprouts Farmers’ Market for the school year will be held at Sharon Elementary School on Saturday, September 6 from 9am-1pm with some indoor and outdoor tables, in conjunction with the 4th annual Sprouty! The Sprouty is a 5K Walk/Run, 10K Run and Fun Loop for the kids, all at 9am!! Sprouty registration is at 8 am. The market will feature a great selection of local produce, meat, bread and baked goodies, herbs & spices, jams & jellies, eggs, fall flowers, and more! There will also be some locally made crafts. Sharon Elementary students will be making FREE smoothies for Sprouty participants, making some for sale, and there will be a local lunch from 11:30-1. Call Donna Foster at 802 763-8280 for information!
Help is needed for the farmers’ market, especially with lunch and the smoothies! 3rd, 4th and 6 th grade classes will be making the smoothies, so please plan to come help out! They could make use of berries frozen from your summer harvesting as well as extra blenders.
