First Edition of the Saturday Sprout

In a creative flurry, Sprouts used the sites and sounds of the market to inspire stories worthy of the Pulitzer.

Caroline Cooks Carrot Cake: by Kiefer
One spring morning, Caroline who is six, planted a little tiny carrot seed. Then the carrot grew bigger and bigger and bigger and bigger, until it was huge and humongous. Then she made carrot stew all day. The other day, she made carrot pie, carrot cake, and carrot enchiladas. The End.

Tasty Goodness: by Alysse
The pretzels at Ghyslains are yummy, cinnamon goodness. They're good breakfast items and are really good.

Another great market...

Karen Baldwin of Tapaahasia Farm and Oxford Farmers Market Uptown manager, Larry Slocum, share a moment of exhaustion after another great Summer Season Saturday morning with 30 farmers/bakers/artists, music, cooking demos, baby chicks, SPROUTS for children, and hundreds of "Friends of Market galore!
Thanks, Oxford and surrounding area for your support of fresh/local/seasonal - and your community.

Gardeners from the Oxford Community Arts Center

Gardeners from Oxford Community Arts Center had such a wonderful time at the market this week! Baby chicks, delicious pastries, robust tomato, pepper, and basil plants, and Harv's lettuce were just a few of the items which caught the attention of our young gardeners. "We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and I would like to thank everyone at the market for making the experience so wonderful," chimed Mary Keppler, who is making Gardeneering workshops for kids happen at OCAC.

A great volunteer opportunity!

Are you energetic? Love children? Love the Oxford Farmer’s Market Uptown?
If so, perhaps you can help!

We are looking for volunteers to assist with Sprout programs. Time commitment is flexible, varying between 2 and 4 hours on the Saturday of your choice. This is a great opportunity for teens looking for community service hours or a great resume builder for young education majors.

Email Market Council at info@OxfordFarmersMarket.com to inquire about how you can help the Sprouts program continue to grow!

We had such a great time at the market and the students can't wait to come again! Even in the rain they enjoyed getting flowers, looking at all the herbs and meeting the farmers. For snack, we got to enjoy fudge, brownies, ginger snaps, and some cinnamon rolls. As the summer progresses we hope to have a booth at the market to sell some wonderful salsa and cut flowers.
