First Friday / Art Step Event

Last night, the Brazos Valley Farmers' Market made a grand debut at the bi-annual Art Step event in conjunction with First Fridays in downtown Bryan. Fifteen vendors lined the parking lot between Mr G's Pizza and St. Andrews Episcopal Church on 26th street.

Slow at first, by 6:30, the crowds covered our little market area enthusiastic about our market. What more wonderful an opportunity to spread the word than to show them exactly what we're made of! 

To help celebrate the evening, volunteer Cherry Moore donated another of her beautiful paintings for silent auction which began at the Art Step event and concluded at today's farmers' market. 

Many customers made it a point to come to my booth practically begging us to appear at every First Friday, proof that the evening was a wonderful success. Thanks to everyone who helped to make it happen!
