We volunteer for Hopelink during the week and at the Saturday Redmond Farmers Market. Here a group of local farmers, artisans and purveyors of fine food, as well as volunteers such as Master Gardeners and others, sell their wares and share their knowledge. All contribute to the ambience and help the local economy, with their delicious harvest,  beautiful flowers, arts and crafts and music. We all have come to appreciate their hard work and knowledge.

At the end of the market, this diverse group of local and regional individuals and families share their bountiful harvests with the less fortunate through contributions of fruits and vegetables to Hopelink. On a recent Saturday, 16 growers donated a total of more than 825 pounds of produce to feed the needy and less fortunate.

We want to salute these kind and caring individuals who contribute to America the Beautiful, America the Bountiful!

Carl and Jeannette Pergam, Redmond
