Transition Towns is driven by the challenges of peak oil and climate change, the Transition Initiative (TI) catalyzes the preparedness of local communities for a future which looks very different from the present. The Woodstock Transition Initiative will be at the market from 3:30-5:30pm. Come learn about their great event happening on September 22!

And hey! We're starting our raffles again. First up is a beautiful Alice Waters' cookbook, Menus for Chez Panisse. You can purchase tickets at the market starting this Wednesday.

A few upcoming events:

We're having a Tomato Contest at the August 29 market. This was a great idea from Shirley Rose and we're really looking forward to it. Stack your Tomato Pie against the competition's by bringing it to the market at 4pm. Tastings will start around 5pm. The only rule is that the tomatoes have to local of course!

And...Scarecrow Fest is back on September 12! Half art exhibit, half Fall Festival, this special edition of the Farm Festival is brought to you by the Woodstock Land Conservancy. So, come on down and better yet, make a scarecrow. It's fun, easy and can find more info at, and we'll be holding a scarecrow making workshop at the August 29 market.
