If you love fresh veggies, homemade jelly and baked goods, don't miss the Gateway Farmers Market Grand Opening This Saturday, June 12, 7 a.m. - noon.

One of my favorite things about moving to the country was the fresh veggies straight from the garden. I watched my dad work hard and faithfully on rows and rows or peas, turnip greens, potatoes, corn, watermelon, and soooo much more. So COME OUT and support our local hardworking and dedicated farmers who supply the community with locally grown veggies and other fresh goods.
