Thank you for a Fabulous Season!

Dear Lyon-ites,
We want to thank everyone who made it out to our Farmers Market this past summer and fall. We had a fabulous season with beautiful veggies, eggs, and flowers from the Farmette, Pachamama, Aspen Moon, and Lone Hawk farms. We’ll be back again next year and we’re already looking forward to it, after we lay low a while for the winter!

Thanks again,
