Maiden South and First Bainbridge Farmers’ Market

It was a big weekend in Downtown Bainbridge!    
Maiden South Maidens on Sneak Peek Day: October 11th, 2014 | Oysters & Pearls    

Not only did we have our Maiden South Sneak Peek, but it was the very first Bainbridge Farmers’ Market, too!  We estimate that around 300 people attended the Market on Saturday.  300 PEOPLE!  We had ten amazing vendors, including Hopkins Farms, Mountain Shadow Farm, Peace Valley Bakery, and more.  We had freshly baked cinnamon rolls, pound cakes, and bread, locally grass-fed beef and pecans, and lots of beautiful, fresh, locally grown veggies.  There were people walking around with breakfast and locally roasted coffee from The Bean, painting pumpkins in Willis Park, buying veggies, and ducking in and out of local shops.  It was a locavore’s dream and I’m so proud I got to be a part of making it happen.

We also had lots of friends, family, and O&P readers come into the shop to look around, have a mimosa, and say hi!  So many people lent their support to this little endeavor and Jess and I appreciate it so much.  We hope you’ll come back this next weekend – you’ll actually be able to shop! :)  Here are a few little scenes from our “Sneak Peek” on Saturday.

We had so much fun talking to everyone, meeting new people, and giving everyone a little taste of what Maiden South is going to be like.  We hope you’ll all come back and see us on the 18th – we can’t wait to show everyone all the handmade goodness we’ve been collecting the past few months!
