Honey Fest
We will (at last!) have Loutet Honey for sale on Saturday. Limited quantities, so come get it. Just in case the Loutet honey doesn't last through the day, we will also have Bee Friendly honey for sale. Both honeys are certified Raw and North Shore only!

Community Market
On Saturday we will also be running our 4th installment of the Community Market, with other local vendors at Loutet. There will be 10+ vendors for this market - all of your favorites from previous markets plus many more!

We are happy to report that we are now running two "checkouts" on Saturday morning to help move through the line quicker and we have been able to keep a selection of most of our produce on the table past 11am.
