Farmers' Market & Kids Food Day Wrap-up.

This past weekend was our Annual Farmers' Market and our first-ever Food is Fun: Kids Food Day at The Hills Market. Not only did we get to see some of our favorite vendors (and taste their wares) but we had a great time working alongside a few worthy organizations and individuals in Columbus: Local Matters, Slow Food Columbus, Edible Columbus and Rachel from Hounds in the Kitchen.
