What’s Fresh on Graduation Day- May 11

This Saturday is Graduation Day at Lincoln. Commencement will take place just down the road at Dwight Reed Stadium. To avoid parking issues, you may park on Leslie Blvd. or the Lorenzo Greene Building on Leslie. The market is a very short walk from both locations. Another option is the lot right off the traffic circle – you can walk across the bridge and take the greenway path for a short stroll to the market, avoiding traffic any day!

The market will be closed May 18 and May 25 due to the State Track Meet at Dwight Reed Stadium. We will return full-force on June 7. We will also start our Thursday Market on June 6 from 5:00 pm to 6:30 pm.

Invermos Valley Farms will have pastured beef and has new offerings of pre-cooked hot dogs and brats and sliced roast and brisket for sandwiches. They are offering two sales in honor of Mothers Day, Graduation and our forced 2 week break!
