  • Sunday, November 18: Donate-a-Bag: Want to lend a hand to those affected by Hurricane Sandy, but don’t know how? We’re taking food donations at the market! Buy a little extra as you’re shopping with your favorite farmers, and drop it off at our Donate a Bag station. Support your farmers, help your fellow city dweller; it’s a win-win!
