Lakeside Farmers’ Market named top market in US

Lakeside Farmers’ Market has been named one of the top farmer’s markets in America by Rodale, Inc. The editors of Rodale polled the managers of the most popular farmers’ markets in the country, according to the American Farmland Trust’s most recent annual awards, to get the best insider tips on making market shopping easier and sometimes cheaper.

The Lakeside Farmers’ Market was selected for its wide array of juicy, in-season produce, including its claim to fame – fresh eggs. The supply comes from a small farm located directly behind the market. Market Manager Peter Francisco also gave his insider secret to snagging a bargain.

“If you want something in short supply, you should come early,” he advises.

Short Pump Rotary volunteers help with rebuild, repair


On June 13, the Short Pump Rotary Club partnered with Schnabel Engineering for a day of volunteer work with Rebuilding Together Richmond. Team members (among them [from left] Chris Rufe, Melissa Abraham, Rick Naschold, and Micky Ogburn) completed a variety of repairs and home improvements ranging from painting and landscaping to cabinet installation and fence building.

“It was a privilege to be involved in this project," said club president Melissa Abraham. "The homeowner kept thanking the volunteers, but I think all of us would agree we are the ones who actually benefited. It was an opportunity to help a community member, fellowship with great people and improve our handyman skills." > Read more.
