Written by Amber Southerland Polk and edited by the CFCM Board

Email with any questions, comments, article contributions or to get your own weekly copy delivered to your inbox. The Clayton Market is located at the Clayton Town Square at the corner of Main and O’Neil Street in Downtown Clayton. We are open every Saturday, April-October 8am-1pm.

New Vendor: The Clayton Market Family is pleased to welcome our newest vendor T&L Farm. T&L is a USDA Certified Organic farm, so all their produce is certified organic. For their first day they will be bringing watermelon, heirloom and cherry tomatoes, zucchini, and several other products. Please join us in welcoming our first certified organic vendor this Saturday.

The Last of the Blueberries: Smith’s Nursery has announced they will be bringing the last few flats of blueberries this Saturday. They expect them to sell out quick, so come early if you are in the market for some fresh blueberries. Attached is a beautiful picture of blueberries ripening on a bush at Smith’s Nursery. They will also be bringing cantaloupe, squash, zucchini; and maybe field peas and chili peppers. If you need something to brighten up your kitchen table, they will also bring fresh Sunflowers.

Call for 2010 Clayton Market Board Members: The board will soon be taking applications for 2010 board members. There will be a formal application and job description to follow. We would love to have you!

Upcoming Event August 8: Jennifer Holt from Happy Hollow Farms will bring her program called “Quick and Easy Composting.” Jennifer will show us how to create healthy compost from garbage around the house. So mark your calendar for next Saturday, your plants will thank you for it.

Call for August Events: We are still in need for events the last two weeks in August. Can you teach us how to garden, reuse things around the home, save money, or be better stewards of our environment? Do you sing, dance, play an instrument or all three? Would you like to get a youth or civic group together and hold old school game contests or face painting? Well get in touch with us and share your skills with the rest of Clayton. We never charge for any event, and are happy to let you promote your business or organization for your time and efforts.
