Photos From Last Market Of The Season: Feb 22, 2014

It was a beautiful day for our final market of the season.  There was plenty going on at Agway: we had the Intro To Chicken Keeping seminar with Terry Golson, which was a big hit.  We also had Brian "Frank Sinatra" Henderson and Jeff Apostolakes entertaining us with their vocal prowess - amazing voices!  Many of the vendors sold out of their products, so everybody ended on a happy note! 
Here are some photos from the market:
