The magic of “cultivating community” really came together as Oxford Farmers Market Uptown and MiamiOxfordOrganicNetwork held their joint celebration under the direction of Marge Glaser at Oxford Community Arts Center Ballroom on Sunday Oct 25.
Around 150 people attended both organizations’ annual meetings, held a raffle of donated community goods, contributed to Market Share (bring something/take something), offered up more fresh/local/seasonal food than could be consumed and serenaded the gathering all the while; what a party!
Among other groups represented were Talawanda Farmers Market, Arabian Knights Bakery, Joel Parks Chef, Oxford Gourd and Drum Ensemble, Amy Cogan-Clay with Warren and Judy Waldron (photo), Stella on Beech, Kona Bistro and Coffee Bar, Tapaahsia Farm Soaps, Loose Knitters and Nelly Bly Cogan, Bev Wiwi handmade baskets and many more.
Thanks go out to all for the applied energy and effort. My, my what a party it was!!!
