Because of the enthusiasm for our Mothers Day basket raffle, there will be a Father’s Day basket raffle, with items donated by Vendors. Buy from a Vendor, get a raffle ticket. There will also be fun, with music and activities for children. On May 28, Robert Wilson will be playing the clarinet. Several Vendors will also be accepting Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Vouchers, SNAP, SNAP Stretch, and WIC cards.
This is a great place to connect local growers with folks wanting good, affordable food and quality household items. These events are presented by the Alderson Community Food Hub.
