Fox's Den: Wooster market running well

Step into my den, pull up a comfy chair and a cup of tea and let’s chat.

Wooster Farmers’ & Crafters’ Market has had a successful first summer run and is still in swing until Oct. 26. The ladies of the Roadrunner's E.H. Club will have fresh corn muffins and handmade crabapple butter and mini blueberry bagels with cream cheese this Saturday. Vendor spots are still free this year. Vendors come at 7 a.m. Sales start at 8 a.m. An end of Market Season Celebration is planned for Oct. 26, 2013. A wild game cooking class will be held called "You Kill it, We'll Grill it!" Duck Dynasty has nothing on them! An outdoor grill set up that day will provide samples and free lunch for everyone. The castle bouncy house is reserved and a pinata for the kids all promise great fun. Please pray for good weather!

The brilliant yellow and green Wooster Market Rooster signs are now up. The Market Board will have a short planning meeting for the 2014 season with any and all interested folks welcome to attend on October 26. Come and give your input.

Congrats to The Roadrunner's Extension Homemaker's Club for their Blue Ribbon on their display at the Faulkner County Fair highlighting the Wooster market. Dee and Marie Wilson did an awesome job setting up the display.

I love to get calls from readers who have also attended any of Greenbrier’s events. Nice to hear from Budd Ward, who suggested to the ladies at the Wooster market they should have a “tip” jar for their really delicious breakfasts. Good thinking, Budd. Sorry there were no veggies the Saturday you were there. He did say his watermelon, though, was “the sweetest thing I ever had.”

This is Homecoming week for GHS’s game Friday at 7 p.m. Be sure to wear the correct color and theme for every day of this week to be in the spirit dress. Of course, blue/white/black is for Friday. After the game, there is a 5th Quarter party at the Event Center until 11:45 p.m. Local churches will provide pizza, drinks, bounce houses and loads of fun for students. Donation is $1 to help expenses.

If you’re interested in being a vendor at the Nov. 9 Christmas Expo at the Event Center, call 501-679-6362 or visit. Many folks do their Christmas shopping at this huge event — a place for great decorating and gift items.  ‘Til next time, talk with you soon.

Please send Greenbrier news, questions, comments, or suggestions to BJ Fox in The Fox’s Den at or or call 501-679-3690. View photos on-line at
