Market Report forMay 10, 2019

What a great night for the Toledo Farmers' Market. Cindy was ready and waiting for the kids to arrive to plant flowers for their Mothers. The crowd was busy looking at the vendors tables, and visiting with ole acquaintances. With the blow of the whistle market started and the bags were being filled.

Kristi had cookies, kolaches, pies that were hot from the oven, twistys, cinnamon rolls, pecan rolls, bars, and small breads. Kristi also had all kinds of little hands to help her tonight.
