Three faithful customers took home Copake Hillsdale Farmers Market heavy-duty canvas totes filled with delicious products from our many wonderful vendors (vendors). The loyalty punch card program kicked off on Customer Appreciation Day, July 23, and ran until the last Saturday of this year’s market, October 29. Shoppers presented their loyalty punch cards at the information table each Saturday, and the folks with the highest attendance won the product-filled bags.
In full disclosure, I was one of the lucky winners. Thank you CHFM! I loved coming to the market every Saturday and have been missing it these last couple of weeks. Being a member of Common Hands CSA helped me make sure I got there every week, but that also made it so convenient. I could get bread, jam, meat, pickles, cheese, fruit, beer, wine, honey, maple syrup, mushrooms, baked goods and even lotions and candles. And other veggies too. And arts and crafts. And more. All in one stop. Sometimes, I felt a little guilty on busy summer weekends when I only had time to grab my veggies and run, but I always took a little time to take in the beauty and vibrancy of all the other vegetables and enjoy the friendly atmosphere.
Enjoy the winter and support your local farmers! See you next Spring.
