Not that you need another reason to celebrate the weekend but check out the events below and snag local fruits, veggies and goodies from our friendly vendors.

Plant a Seed
To kick off our season PCM invites you to join us in a seed planting activity! Stop on by the market tent to make a paper pot and plant a seed to bring back to your own garden.

Story time
Every Saturday at 9:30am! Stories will be chosen based on PCM’s monthly education theme – May is all about gardening. See you Saturday!”
