LEAF Hosts Holiday Market December 16th
This holiday season we invite you to shop local with the Lakewood Earth & Food (LEAF) Community at our December holiday market at Garfield Middle School on Tuesday, December 16th from 5:30-8:00 p.m. This indoor farmer's market and craft fair combination can help you keep all of your holiday shopping local from food to art! Not only will you find a wide variety of local farmers and artisinal food vendors offering local produce, baked goods, and much more for all your holiday gathering needs, but you can also find fantastic gifts for anyone on your list from local artists and merchants selling items ranging from baby gifts, to photographs, to soap. For those that have pre-ordered their City Fresh holiday CSA shares, these will also be available for pick-up.
While your there, don't forget to stop by our LEAF table to say hi! We will have several items for sale as well, with all proceeds going to help support LEAF's programming. Warm up with soup made by our talented volunteer LEAF cooks or sip a hot beverage as you shop. Or pick up a copy of our "LEAF Cooks: Recipes from the Community" cookbook. Filled with recipes from local restaurants and residents featuring seasonal local ingredients, it's the perfect gift for that locavore or chef on your list!
Finally, the market will also be your first opportunity to apply for one of LEAF's 100+ community garden plots across Cove, Kauffman, Madison, and Webb parks and at the Westerly Senior Living apartments for the 2015 growing season. Plots sell out fast - as they say, "the early bird gets the worm" - so get your's before they're gone!

Goody 2 Shoes Bakery
