Success at the farmer’s market

Yesterday afternoon Localmotive tabled at the farmer’s market held upstairs in the Dickinson College HUB, raising over $100! Funds came from selling t-shirts and Klean Kanteens and auctioning off gift baskets full of Yes To Carrot products. Thank you to these company sponsors for giving product donations!

In addition, we were able to reconnect with Cheryl from Buy Fresh Buy Local, who has been very supportive and helpful throughout this journey. We also met a community member who walked across the whole country a few years ago… making the same trip by bicycle seem a little less daunting.  A wonderful woman from the area also gave us two pairs of the warmest, softest socks to take on our journey. Thank you to everybody who has helped us so far! We are well on our way to raising the final funds necessary to make this trip a complete reality.

In other news, we have ordered panniers and racks for our bikes and will likely pick these up at the end of next week. Soon we’ll be touring in style.

A full table!
