Vendors attending June 1st:

Funny Farm of Grant
Hello, I’d like to thank everyone who pre-ordered and came to market
this past Saturday! We all appreciated your attendance and hope to see
you all summer. It’s nice to see everyone and the parking is a lot
easier here!
Things have slowed down with the cooler temps and not much sun, but I
hope to have more asparagus, spinach and radishes. I don’t think the
mixed lettuce will be big enough by Saturday to harvest so I will
transplant my lettuce starts and probably have more by the following
week. Your pre-orders have proved to be very helpful in knowing what to
bring to market, thank you so much for those. They are welcome info for
market. Please text me at 734 945 0720 and I will respond with the
availability of product. Thanks again for your support.

2. Vendors will respond back by no later than Friday before market day with an order confirmation and an invoice that in most cases will allow you to pre-pay for your order. If a vendor is not set up to take payment online they will accept checks (preferred) or cash on market day pickup.
