Special Day at Bounty of the Barrens Market

We feel like every market day is special, but tomorrow's version is even more special. In celebration of National Farmers Market Week, we are also celebrating our local market. All of the vendors you know and love will be there with their bountiful selections of locally grown produce and locally crafted goods., but there is more.

You can come hungry because the Tubbs family will be running the food tent and they are doing biscuits, gravy, sausage, and jelly! Yummm! Then, at about 9:00 Julie Ann Williams will sing the National Anthem, kicking off a brief program of remarks from local elected officials and dignitaries. We are so proud to have them recognizing the value that BOTBM is bringing to Glasgow's economy!

Right after the remarks we have another treat. The Song Farmers will be setting up (is there a more appropriately named group?) to deliver a morning full of their unique bluegrass/rock-a-billy/blues sound, developed right here in our region.

Even the weather forecast promises a special day for us! Come on out and participate. Creating a robust local food economy is not a spectator sport!

The sausage & biscuits were great! And, as always, Tammy's breads are to die for. I tried some new bread this morning, Asiago cheese bread...hmm...smells delicious.
