Lisa and "Cupcake"
El Nino is not my friend.  Sometimes it seems like all I do is study the weather!  With three markets a week and lots of special events going on, weather plays a big roll, but REALLY?  A hurricane? We need rain, but come on!  The farm tour has been postponed, our friends out at Lickinghole Creek Craft Brewery are shutting down for the weekend and postponing their Anniversary Party, but Manakin Market will be OPEN (pending severe wind)!  Please brave the weather and come visit us on Saturday and make it worth it for us! We'll have plenty of fruits and veggies, some meats and a new bread vendor, too.  Make sure to check our website for updates and follow us on the Manakin Market Facebook page!  Grab your canoe and paddle on over!

See you at the market, or in the kitchen!
