Farmers market bounty; Homegrown goodness and ‘Ham contacts’

Share

DSC_0703Stop by the Braselton Farmers Market for a cooling glass of iced cucumber strawberry mint water as you browse the vendor booths at the corner of Harrison and Davis streets in downtown Braselton. You can select from an assortment of vegetables from the R2 Farm, Tickle Me Green Farm, Finch Creek Farms and The Back Forty or pick up some fresh-made breads, pickles, jams and jellies, soft — not hard to eat — biscotti, specially-crafted sausage and gourmet goat cheeses.

You can also see members of the Tri-County Amateur Radio Club show how they communicate with other Hams across the country and the world. For more information about the club, which is this week’s farmers market community partner, visit www.tricountyarc.com or contact J. Warren Walker of the public relations committee for Tri County Amateur Radio Club at 706-654-6347 or walkerjw816@windstream.net

The 2015 Hoschton Fall Festival will be here before we know it, and there is a lot on the agenda for people of all ages to enjoy Sept. 25-27.
This year, the Fall Festival committee decided to gear more activities toward children, so they can have fun and get the wiggles out while mom or dad shops. Kids Zone is what this new feature of the Hoschton Fall Festival will be called, and it is sure to be a hit for the kids.
The Kids Zone at the Hoschton Fall Festival will include a petting zoo, spider jump, a crazy hairstylist, ring toss, duck pond, arts and crafts and much more. Hoschton’s event coordinator Jennifer Kidd said she is excited to see the Kids Zone “boom” this year, and hopefully attract more families and children to the city’s biggest event which find “Let’s Dance” as this year’s theme.
