June was Kids Month at the market. In a celebration of the end of the school year, we planned a special activity each Sunday including a photobooth, hula hooping party, face painting, and bicycle maintenance workshop. Special thanks to Sean from the Cambridge Youth Commission for co-hosting with us.
We also had a visit from Bentley Seeds to teach us how to make paper planting pots and a Market BBQ of pasture-raised local meats prepared by Fresh Dish.
