Point Labaddie Farmers Market
Thursday, August 9th, 4:00-7:00pm
at the Point Labaddie Brewery
1029 Thiebes Rd in Labadie MO
Tomorrow is market day and I have sent out the roll call to the vendors. I will await their reply and let you know who is coming and what they will be bringing. Out prepared food vendor tomorrow is The Tamale Man and live music is by The Legendary Greg Silsby (formerly of Cumberland Gap).
I hope I am doing my best to nurture and lead in the role of growing a small, new farmers market in the midst of lots of other options and choices that both you the shopper/customer and even the vendors have these days.
Everyone is loving the vibe and the atmosphere of the new market on the Point Labaddie property. Everyone wants it to succeed. It truly feels like the perfect spot for a great community farmers market!!
The sales and customer base have been very slow and some of the vendors cannot afford to come each week. In order to move the market to a level of commerce and success that we all want it to be, I am hoping that the community will continue to support it and spread the word. We need a mutual partnership with the local community and the vendors. Each week they are working hard to harvest, clean, pack, produce, make the trip, set up and hope that you visit and support their endeavors. If there are 6 or 26, we can only grow at the ratio that the vendors sell and succeed and spread the word to other vendors of what a great market we have.
I hope to see EVERYONE at the market tomorrow. I will keep you posted on the vendor list…
Many Many Thanks for the Opportunity to Work With YOU! I
Kindest of Regards,
