1. Attention: Farmer’s Market Closed, August 20: The Marymount Farmers Market is going to be closed, for one day, on August 20 because Marymount University has student move-in day. They are using a new system and are unsure how the logistics will work even without the added stress of the market. The market will be open as usual August 27-November 19. http://www.marymountfarmersmarket.org/
