Hello Neighbor!

This Sunday, the Columbia Pike Farmers Market is back in full swing at Pike Park from 9 :00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m.
Please be sure to stop by this and every Sunday for a cornucopia of fruits, vegetables, breads, meats, cheeses, jams, jellies, plants, flowers...the list goes on and on!
This year's warmer than usual spring means that the market not only has strawberries and asparagus, but a wide variety of greens, squash and other fresh-from-the-farm goodies!
Also, please help us welcome two new vendors to the market: Spring Gap Mountain Creamery of Paw Paw, W. VA, our new cheese vendor, and Maple Avenue Market Farm of Great Falls, VA, who grows organic-equivalent produce. Welcome to the Pike!
See you at the Market!
