Hempstead County Extension Homemakers join Farmers' Market this morning

The Hempstead County Extension Homemakers Council joined the Hope Farmers' Market this morning to host the Hospitality Table and provide treats and refreshments to market patrons. Member Linda Gilbert, from the DeAnn Sunshine Extension Homemakers, said she and fellow council members were delighted to be at the market today.

"We enjoy being at Farmers' Market; it's a good place to meet people and enjoy great snacks," Gilbert said. "We also like hosting here so we can show our support for our local farmers and vendors." The ladies from Hempstead County Extension Homemakers had plenty of information to share, as well. They let guests know about their work in continuing education, leadership development, and community service with a focus on health and wellness, food and nutrition, family life and personal development, and much more.

Also in attendance at the market today were Arnold Farms, Reynolds Farm, Silvey Farms, Solomon Farms, Hannah's Berries, BC Farm, and Salinas Farms with their fresh, locally grown fruits and vegetables, as well as other homemade items. Plus, Farm on the Hill was on the scene with their local beef, as well as Papa's Honey with local honey products, Young Sprouts with fresh cut flowers and plants, and Carolyn's Kitchen with baked goods and other homemade wares.

Next week, the crew from Farmers Bank & Trust will host at Hope Farmers' Market. They and numerous local farmers and vendors will be at the Hub in downtown Hope from 7am to 11am.
