Make a Hanging Bat!
Come join Sarah Smith or Amy Taylor this year at the picnic tables on Saturday where kids will be MAKING HANGING BATS! We are also doing a SCAVENGER HUNT!  We have a free kid's activity every week at the market, so kids - come back often and bring your friends!

The Neutral Zone is returning to the market this week.  A newly formed band, The Neutral Zone prides itself on being neutral...that means their music is un-racial, un-political and un-religious. You'll find Dan Labrador on acoustic guitar and vocals, Will Adams on bass and keyboards, and Joan Hammond also signing vocals. Think Jim Croce, John Denver and James Taylor.  In other words... great background music that you can sing along to!  If you would like to book The Neutral Zone for your next party or gig, contact Dan @ 804-347-6183.  If you know of a band or solo artist who would like to play at the market, please email us or call us @ 804-314-9141.

We are collecting donated food each week at the markets through our Gleaning Program for our good friends at the Goochland Free Clinic and Family Services. We will be collecting food products that vendors may end up discarding at the end of each market day. In addition, customers will have the opportunity to purchase products, or bring canned or dried food products, for the GFCFS's Food Pantry for donation to needy families and/or bring items in need. How about purchasing an extra dozen eggs for our hungry neighbors for donation? We will be collecting these items weekly at the ChiknEGG booth. And don't forget, we accept SNAP (formerly know as food stamps)! Tell your friends!
