We hope you saw the special Dia de Los Muertos display at our market this past Saturday. The display was prepared by Pauline Stevens.

Dia de los Muertos is a holiday observed in Mexico, and other parts of the world. Participants make decorative altars to honor and remember deceased loved ones.

From Pauline: "It is said that we died twice; Once when we pass away, the second time when we are forgotten. Dia de los Muertos is a time to remember and honor the memory of someone we lost. A time to celebrate their lives by allowing ourselves to miss, laugh and even cry a little."

This Saturday we welcome Farm to Juice (from San Antonio) to the market! Come visit them and have a nutritionally dense and delicious juice.
