NON-PROFIT HAPPENINGS May 2010

Moab Farmers’ Market
at the Arts Festival

Opening at 8:00 AM during the Moab Arts Festival Saturday May 29 the Moab Farmers’ Market brings fresh food to the community. Look for local fruit, vegetables, herbs, cheese, flowers and plants. Hot coffee is available at the Moab Farmers’ Market Sponsor Booth along with books and gift certificates. Food Stamps are accepted. Find the Farmers’ Market on the Moab Arts Festival Location Map.

Artist Alina Murdock, winner of the 2010 Farmers’ Market Poster Contest, was inspired by horticultural publications from the 1800s with cornucopias of butterflies, fruits and vegetables capturing the variety of items available at the Moab Farmers’ Market. The poster is for sale at the Farmers’ Market Sponsor Booth.

With support from our sponsors the Moab Farmers’ Market is able to provide a direct market venue which supports local farms supplying fresh high quality food.

This is helping to raise awareness about the economic, social and ecological benefits of buying local. Thank you! Youth Garden Project, Arches Book Company, Ye Ol’ Geezer Meat Shop, Moonflower Market, Red Rock Bakery, Canyon Color Graphics, Moab Happenings, KZMU, and the Times Independent.

For information about the Farmers’ Market please call Gayle Weyher, Farmers’ Market Manager at 259-0242.

If there are any businesses that would like to sponsor a hole, there are still some available. The cost of sponsoring a hole is $300.00, or $500.00 to sponsor a hole and enter a team.
