A Full Day on Saturday!

This Saturday, September 25, promises to be an exciting and fun day at Local Roots Market. We'll have lots of activities going on:

--Our monthly Artisan Day will bring in several artists and crafters, showcasing their handmade jewelry, felted wool items, knitting, and much more. It's never too early to think about holiday gifts, or even gifts for birthdays and other occasions.

--Speaking of gift ideas, we'll have two book signings: Local Roots producer Karen Geiser and local freelance writer Lisa Amstutz will sign copies of their new book, Local Choices, a beginning guide to the local foods movement. And former food editor for the Akron Beacon Journal, Jane Snow, will be on hand to talk and sign copies of her latest, Jane Snow Cooks.

--Producers will be on hand to sample their goods, both old and new. Come and taste all the good things that Local Roots has to offer!

--Pamela Slabaugh will offer a class on growing mushrooms, with kits available for purchase.

--Susan Sivey will teach interested craft fans how to needle felt a beautiful numo scarf. Another great gift idea!

--A local pastured poultry workshop will meet in the conference room at the market, bringing new people in to see what a healthy local food system looks like.

A busy day! So what are you doing this Saturday?
