July 19th-21st Weekend

Here we are in the middle of summer with all the fun and lazy days that it brings.  Get out and enjoy the sunshine (between the showers) and enjoy the weekend
in our wonderful little town.
This Weekend in Blythewood
July 19th, 20th and 21st

Jam Up and
Jelly Tight!

What's better than a peanut butter and jelly sandwich.... especially when you know the jelly is made with fresh fruit juices. You can find all the jellies and jams you want and the fresh breads to complete the culinary masterpiece at  the Northeast Farmers Market.  Whether you shop at Doko Meadows or Lake Carolina,  be sure to pick up some fresh SC Shrimp, veggies and wonderful watermelons and cantaloupes, too.    It's what summer's all about!

Something NEW!
Enjoy a 'Taste of the Market'
this week by winning a great basket of goodies....all from our market vendors.  All you have to do is LIKE us on Facebook (Northeast Farmers Market) to find out the 'secret' word!  Be the first to tell Sarah, our market manager the word and you'll take home a wonderful sampling of tasty treats.

Remember the NEFM is at two great locations this year...Doko Meadows on Monday and Lake Carolina on Thursday...both run from
3pm -7pm. 
Look who's coming to the market next week!  We hope to see you there, too!

Who Knew?

The beginnings of rodeo can be traced back to the ranches of the early 1700's, when the Spanish ruled the west.  Duties on the early ranches included roping, horse breaking, riding, herding, branding and
much more.

Where's Tom Sawyer when you need him?

  You've probably noticed the beautiful new picket fence that has been installed at the Langford-Nord House recently.  Well, the painting has started and soon the finished product will create a beautiful addition to our town.  Thank-you's to Cindy Nord and the Blythewood Historical Society for such a wonderful contribution to our townscape.

Clear the Tracks!

Speaking of beautification projects...
The underbrush on both sides of the railroad track have been cut down and cleared away and now, The Manor and all of Doko Meadows present a beautiful view from Main Street. What a welcomed sight!   There's no question...Blythewood is definitely on the right track!

Save these Dates!
