Application approved!

The city Council members, mayor and vice-mayor of Doral approved our application for the Farmers' Market!
Everyone enjoyed our 5 minute presentation and they watched it attentively. Once we were done talking about the benefits of eating locally, and defining food as "don't eat anything your great grandmother would not recognize as food" (by Michael Pollan), Matthew gave a 2 minute quick speech on his support of the market. We answered a couple of questions, and then they unanimously voted YES.
Now the wheels will run faster than ever in our efforts to get everyone on board all coordinated and ready for our Grand Opening on Oct. 31st.
Tomorrow, we will attend a Community Health Fair to promote the Market. It's on NW 82 Ave and 36 Street in Doral. It will be an outdoor event from 4 to 8pm. There will be lots of free goodies from the sponsors and lots of healthy information. Stop by and say Hi! We are having great weather now that the rainy season is almost over.
