Market Today!

Come catch a breeze at the Beverly Farmers' Market today.  There will be great produce, cheese, eggs, meat, bread, soap, honey, maple syrup, chocolate, art, music, and massage.

Today is the last day for our students who organize the Bike Valet.  They will be demonstrating the power of the pedal by making bike powered blender smoothies.

School is starting soon, tomorrow for a lot of students!  What do you pack in school lunches?  Gingergold apples are a great snack, along with cucumbers and cherry tomatoes.  Consider shopping at the farmers' market for your child's lunches.  Packaged foods can be convenient, but at what cost?

Check out these photos from the market last week!

  See you at the market!

Bike powered smoothies at the market this Monday!

We have an exciting market coming up this week.  Check it out!

Bike to the Market
The Beverly Bicycle Committee and the students who have been parking and tuning up bikes will be hosting a Bike Blender on Monday!  They are going to make fruit smoothies throughout the day;  the blender is powered by bike power!  Come check it out and stay refreshed at the market.

Not Your Average Cause
The Beverly Farmers' Market is the cause of the month at Not Your Average Joe's in North Beverly.  Go to NYAJ's on Mondays in August and 15% of profits will go to the Beverly Farmers' Market. We will have the certificates that you need to present to your server at the farmers' market tent on Monday.  If you have friends that go to Not Your Average Joe's be sure to share this information with them and grab an extra certificate for them.  We will also have a raffle for a $25 gift certificate to NYAJ's starting this week.  Come by the market tent to enter!

The market will use this money for marketing materials, music and special events at the market.  Thank you for showing your support.

Cooking Demonstration
Not Your Average Joe's will have a cooking demonstration at the market this Monday.  They will be making a crab salad for everyone to try.  The ingredients will come from the farmers' market!  It would be great to see even more local restaurants shopping locally!
