Farmers Market anticipates season opener

Happy Spring!

All of us here at the Carlton County Farmers Market are excited for a new season. In addition to finding the best local produce Mother Nature has to offer, we will feature more kids' activities and opportunities for you to learn about and taste our products. We are also planning a special event to honor the loss of our beloved bread lady, Emma Olson. Emma succumbed to cancer this winter in the loving arms of her daughter Gail and her husband Erik at the family farm in Esko. Emma was a founder of the Carlton County Farmers Market and a staunch supporter and vendor to the very end. This event is expected to be very special and more information will follow in later news.

As always, we will open our season with a wonderful plant sale. Garden plants of many varieties will be available, many of them heirloom and organic. You can find unique varieties and plants adapted to our growing season. You will find many welcome additions to your home and garden. Lovely canned goods to grace your table, and crafts to tickle your fancy. Our opening days this season are:

• Saturday, June 3, in Cloquet, located in front of Premiere Theatres. Expanded hours are 9 a.m. to noon with early bird sales after 8 a.m.

• Tuesday, June 6, in Carlton, located at the Four Seasons Event Center. Expanded hours are 3-6 pm.

We as vendors strive to find ways to improve our service to the community. Did you know that the vendors at the CCFM donated almost 600 pounds of quality produce to our local Salvation Army food shelf during the 2016 season? We want to share our knowledge and lifestyle with our patrons, and especially with their children. In return we hope that you will make the farmers market a regular spot on your weekly calendar.

Until next time...happy gardening!
