Gather for the Planet gala – We encourage you to visit the Gather For the Planet website to learn more about our December 3rd fundraiser to be held at the Swedish American Music Hall, benefiting AIM and the Center for Food & Agriculture.
Christmas Tree Lot – The annual Christmas Tree lot will be arriving at Splash Pad Park starting Sunday 11/13. Many vendors will need to be temporarily moved to accommodate. Remember, you can check the Grand Lake digital map each week to see if your favorite vendors will be present, and where they will be located. If using a smartphone, we recommend landscape mode for the best viewing experience.
New Market Participant Pipeline – Folks who are confirmed to join but don’t have a firm start date yet:
Mystical Mixes – produces all natural sea moss juices. Their juices are guaranteed fresh and contain no sugar, no water, and zero chemicals. You can try one of their 10 flavors aimed to target different healing in the body.
Derek Pena, one of our AIM staff members decided to dress up as a Minion for Halloween and persuaded four of our vendors to do so as well.
Two of our equally valued vendors apparently march to a different drummer.
