Huntsville's Newest Farmer's Market!

The Greene St. Market at Nativity opened today! Congratulations to the Church of Nativity downtown for their vision and persistence in bringing this community changing effort to fruition. Coinciding with the Art Stroll on the square today the market rang the opening bell at 4pm.
The market is open until 8 pm. The Market is located on the parking lot of the old Health dept.

Janna's Food Farm ~ an
Earth Friendly grower
The market will be open throughout the summer and into the fall. A great mix of earth friendly and conventional growers were on hand to provide fresh food to the eager shoppers. A neighborhood market such as the Greene St. market is one of the best expressions of the buy local food movement.

The air was full of excitement and positive energy truly abounded. Neighbors visiting with old friends and many folks were making new friends this afternoon. This market could be the catalyst for helping to create a closer knit community in this area.

Here are some more of the farmers at the market... got so busy talking to folks, I know I missed several, including a cooking demonstration by Walter Thames of What's for Supper Catering.

 Go Yard Farmers!  Beautiful lettuces.

Also featured were local value-added products like bread, jellies and Lane Tutt's RELISH!  This stuff is great!  She makes some mean chess pies, too!

And to top it all off......Music!  The perfect touch to finish off the afternoon.

Visit Greene Street Market at Facebook or and be sure to come next Thursday 4-8 pm!
