Come by the Market Information booth to pick up a Local Food Guide and bumper sticker, recipes, market bags, vendor information, and sign up for our newsletter. And don't forget to ask about becoming a Friend of the Market. For as little as a $5 donation, you will be able to check out an assortment of entertaining and educational books and DVDs from our Friends of the Market Library, and get a free market bag for signing up!
Don't forget to visit the Cowee Pottery School and other studios inside the Macon Co. Heritage Center (the old school) every Tuesday during the market to sign up for a class, or purchase some artwork or a unique vessel to put those cut flowers in. And take a peek around back at our Cowee Community Garden.
See you Tuesday!
