Kuna Farmers Market was packed today

The boys and Nicola and I just got back from the Kuna Farmers Market, and it was jammed. The Model T Club came to the market, and I think that drew a lot of new customers. Vogels sold out of their now-famous breakfast sandwiches by 9:30 a.m., just 30 minutes after opening. By 11:30 a.m., there was still a line about a dozen deep for folks lining up to get a $1 pulled pork sandwich. Debi Vogel said they were busy like that all morning long. Ione Zufelt over at Navajo Willow Farm said she was sold out of just about everything. We bought her last carrots. I chatted for a while with Don and Mary Johnson over at the Kuna Grange bake sale booth. Don and Mary were wearing matching Hawaiian shirts they bought over in Hawaii. They tell me they're planning another trip there in December. Chassidy Gaunavinaka, 12, performed a traditional Hawaiian dance for the crowd. She's the granddaughter of Neil Durham, who sells fruit at the Market. Great job and congrats to market organizers Cheryl McCord and Bill Clark. Well done. Hope to see some of the new faces back again in coming weeks.
