    Woo hoo!!! Thanks so much for sharing. I am leaving town this week for a trip. I still went to the market today (but didn’t need much since I will be gone next week). I am not going to be back for the “last” market next Sunday and was pretty bummed about that. I am SO (!!!!) happy to hear this news!! I am keeping my fingers, toes, arms, legs, even my eyes crossed hoping that this comes through!

    I received this news in person from a vendor at the market yesterday as I was buying my organic kale – I’m delighted! I look forward to shopping there again next weekend.

Sorry, comment time is over.
