That is great new!! Glad no injuries

So glad everyone is unharmed in this event.

Travel update: NW 72nd Street between N. Essex Heights Road and N. Hertzler Road will remain closed for quite a while.

Was sitting on the front porch when saw and heard the explosion. Very terrifying for a bit, then saw it going the other way. Very thankful no ONE was hurt.

We're thankful for the time and energy Ron has put into the position, and we're glad he'll still be around. And a warm welcome to Colin! ... See moreSee less

Tomorrow is going to be a great day. Plenty of sunshine and lots of produce to choose from. The sooner you get here the more there is to buy. if you don't have cash on hand, that's ok. We now accept debit/credit cards. You do have to buy tokens with the debit/credit cards, but it is same as cash. If you don't use the entire value of the token, you do get change back. We also accept EBT now. Get your fresh produce and baked goods with your EBT. You will receive tokens for how ever much you would like to put on your EBT cards. Unlike the debit/credit card tokens you do not get change for the tokens. There will be produce such as onions, lettuce, turnips, beets, radishes and more. There will also be baked goods such as breads, cookies, jams and jellies. Don't forget the fresh eggs. We look forward to seeing you there tomorrow. ... See moreSee less
