Another fun Town Day for Harrington Park! part 2

corn buyers 2The Green Team and the Environmental Commission continue to help to promote local markets and farmer’s markets at Town Day. We set up our “buy fresh, buy local” table and sold delicious fresh squeezed lemonade, home baked cookies, bread from Amato Bakery in Northvale, as well as corn from Sunden Farms in Old Tappan and peaches from Old Hook Farm.

Several community businesses and organizations had tables at which they handed out “green” items, such as reusable shopping bags and refillable water bottles.  theresa and friends
