Construction is underway on a new shade pavilion to house our Uptown Shelby market location. It will be located at the corner of West Marion and Morgan Streets, just a couple of blocks west of our current location. The market will relocate to our new facility at the beginning of our 2015 season.

Cleveland County employees learned about the health benefits of eating locally at their health & benefits fair, held October 14-16. In addition to tasting food samples provided by the market, employees enjoyed a delicious lunch that featured local ingredients. The theme of this year's fair was "Eat Local, Eat Healthy".

October is Agricultural Awareness Month in Cleveland County. About 60 people celebrated with our local foods community by participating in the Cleveland Grown, Cleveland Strong Farm Tour, held Saturday, October 11.
