- With good planning, you can pass on your property in a way that makes it more valuable to your loved ones.

With the weather warming and sun shining, who can't resist the urge to put on some boots, rustle about the shed, dust off some tools, and dive into the dirt of their garden? But if gardening isn't your thing, don't fret, the 2012 Season of the Cleveland Farmers Market is right around the corner!
The market will be opening its 2012 season on Saturday, April 21 from 9AM-4PM at the 43rd Annual Crosstie and Arts Festival. Market vendors will be set up on the grassy area beside the Mississippi Grounds Coffee Shop (which is also the new Wednesdays market location.) We are still recruiting vendors for the April 21st kickoff, so please, please, PLEASE help us spread the word. We'll also need Friends of the Farmers Market to volunteer at our 'Friends' tent to say hello to the customers, recruit new friends, sell bags and t-shirt, and keep some simple tallys on folks stopping by the market. Please feel free to contact the market manager if you or someone you know would like to be a vendor or a volunteer:
Thanks, and we'll keep y'all posted on new activities, events, and some changes that will be implemented in the 2012 season!

Don't forget that the Cleveland Farmers Market will be open from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. today in the parking lot of Mississippi Grounds (across from the courthouse). Come and get your mid-week produce plus one of the fabulous iced drinks at Mississippi Grounds to beat the heat.
