YOGA
Coming soon: more eagle pose. Thanks to Borealis Yoga for leading us last week!

WEEK 1 WAS SO LAST WEEK. ONWARD TO WEEK 2!

There was yoga. There was wine. There was music, soccer, and snacking. Thanks to all of you—shoppers, vendors, and entertainers—who came out last Thursday for week 1 of the 2017 Medford Farmers Market! It was awesome to see so many old friends (whaddup, Good Roots Farm?) and new faces (howdy, Freedom Food Farm!). But you know the only thing better than a good party? Another good party! Swing by our riverside celebration of all things green (lettuce, kale, Girl Scouts, Mint Green Monster Cupcakes)  on your way to or from this summer’s one and only Circle the Square. You’ll find us 3–7 p.m. Thursday at the Condon Shell!
