Market Day - 10/6
This week at the 61st Street Farmers Market, here are some of the ways that you can experience all the pleasures of change:
- Faith's Farm has pork chops, shoulder and loin roasts back in stock. Also, Kim has made a new batch of soaps, laundry stain sticks, lip balms and lotion bars—so environmentally safe, you could eat them!
