Time to dunk the baskets
Today the UPS man showed up late this afternoon with four cases of African Market Baskets.
These are a Fair Trade Purchase and are wonderfully colorful & sturdy. They are shipped flat and have to be rehydrated before they can be put out for sale. So, into the basket bath tub they go!
These beauties are great for "green shopping", gardening, magazines, any place where you would use a tote bag. At the Farmers Market, we've offered the shallow ovals to fill with jams, honey, organic pancake mix & pure maple syrup, wine, bread, cheese, & produce as a one of a kind gift.
We'll be offering "The Taste of the Hudson Valley" gift basket in our shop in time for Thanksgiving gifting. What hostess would'nt love a basket full of Natures Bounty from our local producers & growers?
