DBA organizing summer farmers market this year

Farmers markets across the country are filling the need for fresh, homegrown fruits and vegetables and homemade baked goods.

Join other gardeners, bakers, growers and organizers for a special meeting in early April to outline the 2009 farmers market.

The meeting is scheduled for 6 to 7:30 p.m. April 2 at the Golden Cavvy, 538 Yampa Ave. The Craig Farmers Market will be from 3 to 6 p.m. Thursdays, beginning in May or June.

The Downtown Business Association is looking for people interested in helping make this year's market the "best ever," the DBA reported in a news release.

According to Burpee Seed Company owner George Ball, "Whenever the economy is down, we see a spike in seed sales. For every dollar you invest in a garden, you get an average of $25 worth of store-bought produce, so it's an excellent return. Plus, you can't buy that kind of flavor at the grocery."

For more information, call Carol Jacobson at 824-5343 or 824-3108.
