Three bands performed while over twenty vendors sold produce, crafts and artisan breads, vegan dessert items and more. Our lunch menu this year included wild-caught Salmon Chowder, Mulligatawny and Vegan Chanterelle Soup, fresh tossed garden salad, whole-wheat sourdough bread and choice between honey-walnut, apple and berry pie!
