Market Report for August 23, 2019

What a night the Toledo Farmers' Market had on this Friday night? Picture this, twenty two vendors were set up ready to sell, in front of the bandstand Iowa Premium, a National Company had a huge tent set up with hamburgers grilling on the large grill, smoke filling the air with the aroma of freshly grilled hamburgers.

Jonah Seymour was playing his fabulous music; many were sitting in their lawn chairs enjoying the night. We had an enormous crowd around the market. This is what every market manager dreams of, a fantastic market night. The crowd was so huge that Iowa Premium, a National Company ran out of hamburgers. We apologize for those that were still in line waiting for a delicious burger when this happened.
