In honor of Earth Day on April 22, we celebrated at the market by using recycled and reusable products to create lucky lady bugs and creepy crawly hand puppets! Kids at the market came to the Info Booth and used paper plates, markers, crayons, sticky googly eyes, and construction paper to create their puppet friends.
Next week the market WILL be open. Bring your little ones to the Info Booth and create funky fun recycled Easter baskets, and then head throughout the market on an Easter Egg Hunt! Joe's on the Nose donated their used milk cartons and we'll be cutting off the tops and decorating them for Easter baskets, and then sending the little ones on an egg hunt throughout the market!
In the coming weeks we have some more fun planned for market days! May 8th we will be celebrating Moms at the market with an awesome planting project. May 15th the HBA is teaming up with Bristol Bay Salmon Co to host our first ever fish throwing competition as inspired by Pike's Place Fish Market in Seattle. On May 22nd will be our monthly Visiting Chef Series with Chef Mary Jo of Hillcrest's very own Gossip Grill.
