Cooling off at the Hillcrest Farmers Market
This weekend at the Hillcrest Farmers Market we cooled off with some pretty hand-fans that were decorated by market patrons. We got the idea from another market patron who visited us from Omaha, Nebraska a few months ago. Bill was decorating a fan for his granddaughter using markers and a paper fan that he bought offline, and was creating a Disney princess theme for her. We loved the idea so much we bought 40 of our own fans!
Parents and children alike collaborated on their fans, and we got some beautiful and eclectic designs out of the whole thing. We welcomed new friendly faces, as well as many of our market regulars.
Next week we're welcoming the heat of the summer by throwing a watermelon eating competition. Think you have what it takes? Come sign up at the Info Booth and compete over the course of the day to be the watermelon eating champ!
July 24th we'll be hosting our monthly Visiting Chef Series, followed by an Info Booth Luau on July 31st filled with Hawaiian lei's and a pinata ('cause why not?!)
