Matthews CFM ends Tuesday market night early

Pauline Wood, the manager of the Matthews Community Farmers' Market, sends word that tonight's Tuesday Twilight Market will be the last of the season and you can blame the weather:

"We did intend to hold our Tuesday Twilight Markets through Aug. 6, but it has become clear that would be overreaching given the situation our farmers are in this summer. The continuous wet weather has wreaked havoc on crops, and, in a nutshell, the overabundance farmers usually experience in June and July didn't happen this year."

Tonight's market, held in the usual space at North Trade and John streets in Matthews, will include a demo by Jason Newman, sous chef at Barrington's, and vendors will include Hinson Farms, Garden of the Woods, Willow Oaks Farm, Walnut Ridge Farm, Nut Hill Farm, Baker's Blessings, Quench!Essentials and Ranucci's Big Butt Barbecue. 

Saturday's market hours will remain the same.
