Our sweet Sohie finds her retreat every week at the Thursday morning farmers market on the VVC campus. She has visited our market for the better part of 1o years or so. Her weekly visit involves getting lots of hugs and petting from ALL of her favorite vendors and customers alike. This is her special treat after she has done her best to treat the elderly that she visits every week around the valley. She is a therapy dog and her sole purpose is to bring healing to those in much need of repair. We love our special pooch.
Beautiful April weather is an added plus to bring all the wonderful families, vendors, food, fun and farms together once again for its 19th year!
