WMM Open House on the 21st
Please join us! Sunday the 21st of May, 2-5 pm, we invite you to join us for a celebration of a new growing & market season - an Open House for WMM. We'd like to take this opportunity to thank our loyal customers and introduce others to the market. It will provide a chance for you to meet and chat with several of our farmer/vendors, enjoy free local food, take a tour of Rasmussen Farm if you'd like, and have some fun. Fiddleheads and other products will be available for sale. A drawing will be held for WMM Gift Certificates.

The event will be held at Rasmussen Farm, 21 Schoolhouse Rd in Freeman, at the top of Gilkey Hill Rd. To find it with GPS, call it Baston Rd. in Strong. For directions or more info, contact Deborah at 857-225-1199 or [email protected].
