Farmers Market Success and Label Art

The first market of the season was a success!

The sudden change of venue just days before the first market had a few people searching for us, and we’re happy they did. The new market area has more parking and will hopefully make shopping easier. Look for the signs, the market is located about half way between Pima and Alma School on Dynamite at the Chase Bank center.

We were happy to see so many of our customers after the summer break and to hear how much you missed Carol’s cheeses, preserves and jams.

There are many new items to try, so mark your calendar for the next market, October 15th, 9am – 1pm.

Artwork for the Labels

Sue Wenger is the artist behind the beautiful water colors you see on our new labels. I think they are absolutely beautiful and have visions of the fruits and vegetables on everything from to note cards to fabric to coffee mugs and clocks. Sites like Cafe Press, Zazzle and Spoonflower make it possible. What do you think? Wouldn’t some of this look wonderful on a kitchen clock, as an apron or wrapping paper?

She’s working on the banner for our booth now. I can’t wait to see what she comes up with.

The weather should be cooler in two weeks, so remember a sweater, your hat and any empty jars you might have. Return them for $1.00 off your next purchase of any Rio Verde Naturals product!

Rio Verde Naturals at Troon North Farmers Market May 7

We have heard rumors that the  hard-working people who run the market are searching for indoor alternatives for the market to continue through the hot Arizona summer months. We’ll keep you posted.

We’ll have a few bags of soil on hand at the market. If you’d like more than one bag – or more than 15 pounds – let us know. Carol had over 10,000 pounds formulated specifically for organic potting needs.
