We want everyone to come out to celebrate our season with a free slice of watermelon, door prizes, games and fun.  Hometown Inflatables will be set up with the obstacle course bouncy play station for the kids, and BLOODONE'S Big Red Blood Mobile will be set up all morning for those that wish to donate a unit of blood.  One unit of blood can save up to three lives. HEYWORD, a local band, will be in concert from 10:30 AM to 1:00 PM, so come early and stay late for lots of fun and festivities. Oh, and don't forget, our growers and crafters will be set up as usual all morning long with lots of Fresh From Florida produce and goods for sale. We should have a good variety of produce available as okra, corn, peas, butter beans are now coming in as well as watermelons and cantaloupes. We have been having a good selection of cottage foods available: jams, jellies, honey, cookies, breads and other pastries.

Customers are reminded to fill out a customer appreciation ticket each time they make a purchase to be eligible for the drawing of $25 in Market Money, and other great door prizes that will be given away throughout the morning.
