Sip, Shop, Socialize at West End Farmers Market

Sep 15, 2017 in Updates

The best part of buying at WEFM is that you get to talk to the person who knows the most about the food your buying. Whether it’s fresh from the farm produce, specialty baked goods, breads, pickles, meat, seafood (You get the picture!)… you can find out so much more than you would at the grocery store. It raises your appreciation for your food and the whole eating experience. So want to know how to use that package of bacon ends? ASK this guy… he’ll be happy to tell you!
