Another reminder – the Farmers’ Market is still happening EVERY Sunday in The Junction — 10 am-2 pm, then 11 am-2 pm in January & February. Here’s the bulletin for today:

We send our thanks to so many of you who were able to help us get the word out about our emergency [flood] relief fund for market farmers: The Good Farmer Fund.

Our phone here at the office was kept busy this week with generous folks calling in and wanting to help out. We’ve also received wonderful donations from our regular shoppers at the U-District and West Seattle markets on market day.

Anyone interested in making a contribution to the Good Farmer Fund can contact the NFMA at 206 632-5234 or send a check made out to the Good Farmer Fund c/o the NFMA at 4519 ½ University Way NE, Suite 200, Seattle, WA 98105.
