I’m sure many of you, like me, are caught up in the hustle and bustle of the holiday season. With Thanksgiving falling so close to Christmas this year, it’s made it a bit more challenging to get everything done that “needs to get done”. In fact, part of what I need to get done each week is write a post for The Wild Ramp. However, I haven’t been to the market the past couple of weeks, because I have been busy spending time with family and friends, decorating our Christmas tree, and shopping for Christmas presents. So, I haven’t been writing. I missed it.
Anyway, many of the gifts I purchased are from the mall. However, this coming weekend, I vow to shop local and support The Wild Ramp and many other area businesses. I feel truly blessed that we have a market like The Wild Ramp in our community. With 88 producers and growing, The Wild Ramp has had a real impact on the lives of real people and for that I am thankful. I know, though, that in order to keep the market growing and to keep it strong, I have to continue to support it. What better way to support The Wild Ramp than to spend dollars that I would already be spending on Christmas gifts at a place that I hold dear to my heart.
