Farmers Market Mulls Dog Ban

The issue of whether dogs should sit and stay out of the Moscow Farmers Market and arguments about the First Amendment got mixed reviews from an advisory board on Monday. No decisions were made. The Farmers Market Advisory Board held a special meeting following a decision last week during a Moscow Administrative Committee meeting where the board's input was sought regarding prohibiting dogs at the market. City attorney Rand Fife also proposed an amendment to market policy that would require organizations to apply for space in Friendship Square. Though not included in this year's policies revised by the board, the issue of removing dogs from the market was brought by Councilor Wayne Krauss, said Fife, because of comments he received from the public regarding safety concerns/Brandon Macz, Moscow-Pullman Daily News.

2nd Farmer’s Market Mostly Sunny

“Our second Saturday at the Kootenai County Farmer’s Market was a success,” posts Sunny/Bent’s Beer Garden, “and the sun was actually shining this time. As you can see, I had lots of help…pictured at Mostly Sunny’s booth # 29 (from left to right) is my oldest daughter Brittany, my granddaughter Abby, and of course daughter Meghan…aka Daisy Girl. I was very lucky to have all the help… we got so busy that daughter Brittany had to make a trip back to the greenhouse for more plants.” More here.

Question: What have you planted in your garden so far?

Mostly Sunny To Debut @ Farmers Market

Pepper plants will be one of the things for sale at the Mostly Sunny booth at Farmer’s Market tomorrow morning in Hayden, along with Straight Eight cukes, cabbage, various herbs, and various tomatoes. Sunny, of course, is one of the regulars at HucksOnline, who helps compile Bent’s Beer Garden blog.

I am very excited to be a part of the market this year and I must admit….I’m a little nervous as well. I have no idea what to expect and I know that many folks who participate have much larger growing operations than we do. So I guess my only real fear is we won’t have as much to sell…at least not in the front end. I heard from a fellow market vendor that some vendors simply don’t show up until they have produce to sell. Nevertheless, we want to be there on opening day just to get a feel for how the market operates…if I run out of plants to sell then rest assured we will be back to the market when harvest time comes around/Sunny, Bent’s Beer Garden.

Question: Have you started your garden yet?

Mostly Sunny To Make Market Debut

Tomorrow is opening day at the Kootenai County Farmer’s Market. I chose the name of our farmer’s market business to be “Mostly Sunny”. We went with this rather than our blog name of The Beer Garden because we obviously can’t sell beer at the market. The Beer Garden blog got it’s start on The Spokesman Review’s blogroll on Huckleberries Online and many of our local friends know me as Sunny and they know Jeff as Bent. These names were simply monikers that originated from the Spokesman’s blog world. Hopefully, this clears up any confusion … I am very excited to be a part of the market this year and I must admit….I’m a little nervous as well/Sunny, Bent’s Beer Garden. More here.

Question: How many of you are going to join me tomorrow in welcoming Bent, Sunny, & Daisy Girl to their corner of Farmers’ Market?
