St. Paul’s last farmers market is Saturday

Published: Friday, Sept. 26, 2014 5:30 a.m. CST

The last Thrive Neighborhood Market of the season will be held at St Paul’s Episcopal Church, 900 Normal Road on Saturday.

The market will be held from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will feature fresh produce on a pay-at-what-you-want basis.

The church is located in an area lacking fresh food retail outlets. Thrive is an outreach-church development group that has been seeking ways to make a difference in community life. The garden project was launched this year.

Anyone who has produce from a backyard or community garden can donate, provided the produce has been picked within 24 hours of the market day.
