THANK YOU TO RISE ABOVE DELI for joining us as a Market Sponsor for the rest of the season. Many of you met Brandon & Montana as market vendors last season -- these days, their fresh baked bread makes a variety of traditional & not so traditional deli sandwiches in the space they share with Hillman Beer at 25 Sweeten Creek Road. They are still dedicated to serving their customers the finest, made from scratch food, & if you've not yet dropped by to try it, we suggest adding it to your weekend list.

(Rise Above Deli is also catering our Summer Snacks & Storytime picnic next week! Stop by market August 25th for knishes made with potatoes from John's Berry Patch, onions from Stonecrop Garden & Round Mountain Creamery cheese.)
