Dear Folks,

    It completely slipped mu mind that this Saturday there is no market at Fairfax due to some community event.  So the options for your CSA pick up -

1. We can give you a double share next week October 20

2.  You could pick up at one of our other locations yet this week.  We are at Belle View Condos in Alexandria from 3-7 pm on Thursday or St Luke's Episcopal Church - Fort Hunt Rd Saturday - from 8 - 1pm.

 

Please let us know what you would like to do.  Sorry for the late notice.  Louise
