August Celebrates National Farmers Market Week
The farmers market is a shared space where its supporters and farmers can establish meaningful relationships around the agricultural needs of the community. It's a common place where people gather to express a variety of interests, ideas, lifestyles, cultures, and music centered around food. At the heart of every farmers market is the promise that local, seasonal, healthy food are accessible to everyone.
On Tuesday, August 8, join us at Birdhouse Farmers Market for the celebration of National Farmers Market Week. Get to know your local farmers and fellow market supporters better by sharing gardening tips and favorite recipes.

Birdhouse Market, along with Patty Park’s librarian team, will be hosting a Kids Club program for children up to age 10. This program encourages children to interact with participating vendors to learn more about your products and how they are grown or made. We welcome your participation to make the program a success and to help our youngest market shoppers connect with you and your products! Here is how the Kids Club program works.
* Children will earn points by participating in Kids Club activities hosted at vendor booths.
*At different point intervals, the children can earn prizes.
*Patty’s team will check with you the week before to see if you would like to host a Kids Club activity.
The activities are very short, require little or no preparation on your part, and are designed to interest children in fresh, locally-grown or made food.
If you are hosting an activity on market day, you will receive a Kids Club sign to place on your booth, so children know where to go. Once a child completes an activity with you, you will sign off on their activity log

Tiny Nest Concert Series Featuring Sam Reed
Sam Reed has been singing and performing with bands in and around Richmond, VA since 2006, but the passion she has for music goes back to early childhood. Whether singing in church or singing along to her parents old school records the gift of soul singing was always present. After meeting and working with Devonne Harris in 2012, Reed was finally convinced to start recording her solo project. With the help of Harris on production and a host of her favorite RVA musicians, she produces a sound that is undeniably soulful and resonates honesty. Simply put, Sam Reed is blazing the trail for other female funk/soul R&B artists to follow; she uses her unique sound to take the “alternative” and make it something familiar again by including influences of rock, soul, jazz, R&B, and of course good ole southern gospel. It’s guaranteed to leave a lasting impact on the soul.
