Whirly-ThingsVendors and visitors alike were craving a cool shower by the end of last Tuesday’s market. An occasional breeze twirled the Whirly Things, but we surely need rain and a reprieve from hot air.

We’re pondering ways for visitors to cool down at the July 23 market.  That’s RAGBRAI day in Des Moines, so the whole town will be pedaling in one way or another.

Congratulations to Tuesday’s winners of $10 market dollars: Allison Henry, Andy Negrete and Tim Hall.  Vouchers are in the mail.  Buy fresh, buy local!

Franklin-LibrarySome lucky persons also won lots of books from the friendly folks from the Franklin Avenue Library.

Read lots, read local!
