CLG:  Thank You Note, Market CLOSED this week

Hi everyone

Happy Thanksgiving. The market will be CLOSED this week. If you are running low on local goodies, be sure to hit up the Farmstand at Bell Urban Farm.

I wanted to take a second to thank everybody who makes CLG possible.

I am very thankful for our wonderful community, for all of you who care about where your food comes from, and help support small local farmers. Thanks to all the growers who work so hard to make delicious, healthy, more sustainable food and products available to all of us. A special thank you also goes to all the volunteers who help CLG run smoothly week after week—we couldn’t do it without you!

This was an especially challenging year for many farmers, and you may have noticed the impact it had on the market. Many products that are usually abundant were missing this year. Thank you to all of you who stuck with us during the lean times.

I am working on getting more farmers to join the market so we can have a more rounded offering, but it is very important that we keep supporting local food and spreading the word about the market. So please don’t forget to tell your friends, family, and co-workers about CLG!

Also, thank you for taking the time to fill out the survey. The feedback is very helpful.

And lastly, I want to thank our beloved friends Steve and Carissa Lunk, and take a moment to appreciate all the hard work they put into the market—CLG wouldn’t be here without them. I am grateful and honored to be able to continue cultivating the love they spread in our community.

With lots of love to everyone,
