 The Jerome Farmers Market would like to wish you a joyous and blessed Christmas and New Year. As we navigate life's ups and downs, there is always something to be grateful for. Light up the world with your courage, optimism, and kindness. We appreciate you all the ways you lift us every day!

 As we have finished the 2022 Farmers Market Season, we have many people we need to thank and whom we are so grateful for.

You may have noticed how nice how nice the grounds, the barn and surroundings area looked. OJ, John, Nina Hollifield, and their help worked tirelessly to make it the best it has ever been. We so appreciate their hard work. 

Thanks to Agropour/Jerome Cheese for their donation to help many worthy causes. A special thanks to Starr Corporation and ICCU for their donations to fund the festival. We are ever grateful for Lee Family Broadcasting and Paul who faithfully every week for the market updates and for their broadcasting of our events. 

   We appreciate KEZJ and their promotion of the festival. The Jerome Civic Club worked tirelessly to help and serve the community as did our wonderful vendors. They're the best of the best. Lorna Irwin has been my surrounding board and inspiration all year long. Her snake was epic. 

Ana Harrop was with me all year working on the web page and announcing events each and every week. She came all the way down from Alaska to help with the festival. My husband Kent lugged, hauled, and toted, tons of product, tables, tents, vegetables, and everything else that needed to be moved. This is a family affair; Steve, David, Hilary, Theo, Hattie, and James were tremendous help. My models for the banners and posters were McKenzie Capps and Mimi Bartholomew. 

Our sponsors allow the market to run and we are so appreciative of them and their support.

However, most of all, we are thankful to our Father in Heaven for the great harvest all year long, for the beautiful weather this season and for the opportunity to live in this beautiful valley. 

We love our patrons and wish you all a beautiful fall and blessed holiday season.

--Sincerely, Kathy Bartholomew, Market Director

After watching the news and being sad, I took a little time out this morning and had a wonderful time. Tomorrow, Moss Greenhouse is opening for the season!...By all means, take the time to soothe your soul, make you happy, and lift your spirit. Go out and see the marvelous herbs, pansies, d├ęcor and flowers. Trust me, you’ll be so glad you did. The smell is intoxicating and the feeling amazing.

 This weather is getting close to breaking from winter. As it warms up, it will quickly be time to clean up the flower beds, gardens, planters and patios. I am rushing to complete all indoor projects because the minute it is time, we’ll be out for hours a day. The house will be on it’s own.

 The vendor listing is increasing and we have some new folks for you to meet. Time is quickly approaching our opening day. Believe it or not, efforts are also well under way for the Harvest Festival in October!

 We wish you an amazing spring and joyful time to soon get outside. Whooo Hooo!

Happy 2022!

As I watch my flag blowing outside…(east wind again) coyotes howling north of us, the earth quiet under a blanket of snow, I realize that this is a resting time for us. For those who work out in the elements…not so much. Hearth and home take on a definite pleasurable meaning. This is the time of research, study, craft development, seed ordering and planning for the days when the weather breaks and outdoor work once again begins. 

The other day, we walked past some stacks of potting mix and the scents definitely stir up longing. I am glad however, that we live in an area with 4 distinct seasons. The change is good for the soul. This is a time to try new recipes, explore new ventures, and enjoy the upheavals in the weather patterns. It’s nice not to worry about frost destroying crops. Enjoy this moment. It too will change. In the process, protect your health. Eat well, exercise, rest, and pay attention to your body rhythms. Soon, we’ll be outside preparing soil, planting, weeding, watering, mowing and barbequing. Be grateful where we live.

 In Alaska, our daughter and her family endured 70 mph winds for 3 days, subzero temperatures, power outage for 36 hours and empty grocery stores and covid. This all happened at the same time. They are doing well and look forward to coming down to the lower 48 soon. Winter can be spectacularly beautiful and dangerous at the same time. Live is always an adventure…embrace it and be thankful. We are thankful for you all and truly look forward to seeing you again. Make good use of your time.
