Healthy Eats, Friendly Peeps and a Chill Vibe

Jun 28, 2014 in Updates

We are tickled that so many folks came out to celebrate with us last Sunday. It was a great party with music, cake and a bounce house. We would like to thank guest artist/ toy designer Michael McGinnis for bringing his giant SuperPlexus. 3 lucky raffle winners went home with their own PerPlexus toy. It was a terrific event, and we’re still basking in the afterglow.

The Amazing SuperPlexus!

AT WEFM our local vendors and artisans always take center stage. And this week we’re delighted to announce two new vendors:

• From Humble Beginnings – Home décor and artwork. We love their idea of re-purposing/reinventing furniture for people and pets.

• Spun Tongue Nuttery – Offers specialty organic nut butters and mixed nuts (pecan, almond, hazelnut) all sourced from single family farms … can you spell NUTricious?

Bounce with Joy! Jumpin’ Jacks will be joining WEFM for the summer. Their inflatable bounce house was such a big hit with the kids at last Sunday’s market, we decided to make it part of the market.
