Market Veggies – Oct 11

With Thanksgiving just around the corner it’s a perfect time to slow down, reflect, and express gratitude for all that is amazing in our lives. The CCFN Mobile Markets has had an amazing summer and we owe a huge thanks to our community. So thank you to every shopper, member, community partner, volunteer and to our Farm Partners!
