We’ve made some exciting progress on the market the last couple months as well as having encountered a few setbacks. The exciting news is that the construction has been moving rapidly along. All the rough-in plumbing has been installed and concrete floors were poured in the market and the basement. The interior walls are in the process of being framed and it’s beginning to look like a store again.
I begin my writing on a grey September day in Hillsdale NY when the first autumn wind is blowing needles off the Tamarac tree. There is a growing excitement for myself, the rest of the Random Harvest team, and our community about this moment that we’re in. We are a collective of four women who are re-opening the local Random Harvest farm store as a cooperatively owned market and community space.
