Have you heard the buzzzzzzzz?

July 24 at the UpTown Market, we are exploring the environment and its impact on our food system.  We have lots of information about the weather and environmental initiatives to share.

With all the buzz about the plight of bees, we thought we would bring our pollinating partners into the Square for you to see; up close and personal. Don’t worry, you aren’t in danger of a sting.  The only danger is living in a world without bees if things don’t turn around quickly!


Get pickled this week!

On Thursday July 17, Theresa from Garden Party will take us through pickling step-by-step with demos at 4pm and 6pm.  Pickling is a great way to use those bushels of cucumbers that we all end up with in our gardens, and it is also a way to get creative and make some tasty snacks and side dishes for months to come.

Mother Nature has blessed us with a bounty of resources that not only feed and house us, but also clothe and adorn us! At the Uptown Market on July 3rd, people of all ages will have the opportunity to create a craft using materials provided by Mother Nature. Longtime Market vendor Shelley, of Shelley’s Stoneworks, will be showing us her fossil collection (most of which she has mined herself!) and for a few dollars, you can even take home your own lovely earth-inspired craft!

Check out our incredible event line-up!
