May is here!

It’s starting to heat up and so is the White Rock Local Market!  This weekend’s everything market is going to be great now that more produce and fruits (PEACHES!!) are being harvested and brought straight to you – NO MIDDLE MEN!  Okay.  So you love this service.  We love doing it for you.  We want to do more and your generous support is needed to make this a reality.  Would you be a member?  It’s a tax-deductable way to support YOUR community.  Did you complain about Washington and big business this week?  Me too!  Throw some of that tax-deductable cash our way to prove that you really care about LOCAL.   See more info here:
