Week Three:  We are doing something right!

Yesterday, the Heldeberg Market team wrapped up it’s third week of deliveries, and it is clear that we are on to something!  More than 3/4 of our customers were already repeat customers!  Thank you, all, for your dedication and support of our farmers and the eat local movement!  If any of you might be interested in taking advantage of free delivery, get in touch with me about organizing a group of 5 people to a group drop-off in your neighborhood or in your workplace.

Thank you all, as always, for your strong support of our local farms! And remember, a great way to support your country is to support your local farmer- where you know your food is safe!
