Notes from Old Greenwich

Nate's Naturals joined the Old Greenwich Farmers' Market late this season. Organized and led by Dana, Amy and Leslie (pictured here L-R), the Old Greenwich Farmers' Market is held every Wednesday in the parking lot of the Presbyterian Church of Old Greenwich, which space PCOG graciously donates to help promote local growers, makers and artisans in Old Greenwich. Last Wednesday was an opportunity for me to take an afternoon off from my day job and join Joanna at Old Greenwich. We were even able to bring our daughter LiLi to round out our team. It was a mild, beautiful late fall day, with the afternoon sun shining in at a sharp angle through the trees. I managed to check in with our old friends Four Mile River Farm and Sugar Maple Farms, and met a number of new vendors/artisans too. A pretty successful afternoon -- Jo and I introduced a lot of new customers to Nate's Granola. And LiLi had a great time playing on the church playground which featured her favorite thing -- the slide. Once the sun went down the afternoon quickly grew chilly but sales kept up until we wrapped up in the semi-dark at 5 p.m. You can see more photos in the album I added to our Facebook page.

See you at Old Greenwich again on November 23, the day before Thanksgiving!
