    We went to the Holyoke Fireworks and they had the most wonderful face painter for children.
    Would anyone know her name and how to get in touch with her? We might be interested in using her at a future party.

    Thanks.

    CISA and Greenfield Farmers’ Market Blueberry Bake-Off

    Please join CISA (Community Involved in Sustaining Agriculture) and The Greenfield Farmers’ Market on Saturday, August 1 at 10am for a Blueberry Bake-Off. Come and celebrate the Pioneer Valley blueberry season by showing off your secret family recipe, making your favorite treat, or perhaps a recipe you’ve created yourself.

    Participation is easy. Simply bring your baked blueberry creation, along with the recipe, to the Greenfield farmers’ market table by 9am. Your submission will be tasted by our 4 judges: Greenfield’s Mayor Bill Martin, Jay Fadanza from WHAI radio, Phil Korman, CISA’s executive director and Rachel Robertson-Goldberg from Crabapple Farm. The judges will determine the Blue Ribbon Winner, who will receive a $50.00 gift certificate to the Greenfield Farmers’ Market and a CISA community membership (valued at $60.00). The runner-up will receive a $25.00 gift certificate and a CISA tote bag (valued at $10.00). Tasting will begin at 10am and the judges will announce the winners once all entries have been sampled.

    All are welcome to attend, including those outside of the Greenfield community. The event will be held at Greenfield Farmers’ Market, Court Square, Greenfield. No pre-registration is necessary. For more information, please contact Devon or Lauren at 413-665-7100, x22 or Lauren@buylocalfood.org.
