This Saturday from 8am-Noon is the last Helena Farmer Market of this year. It also may be the last one ever since we have several volunteer retirements and no replacement volunteers. So come out, enjoy it, and thank you to all the staff who have volunteered to serve for so many years.

We are excited to have Sonya Hey Jackson from Newk's at 9am giving everyone a Chef demonstration. We will also have Katie Searcy performing live and the non-profit spotlight will be on Hatching Hope.

August 13th Market

Come join us this Saturday from 8am-Noon

We will have music from Stick and Strum and our special chef guest will be Chef Criss Smiley:

Executive Chef Criss Smiley likes to refer to himself as a “local transplant.” He feels very much at home here in Helena, Alabama, but was born and raised in Uniontown, Pennsylvania, just south of Pittsburgh.

His first exposure to cooking came from his mother’s small restaurant in an old schoolhouse building
where he learned how to follow recipes and then began to develop the fine art of enhancing those with his own ideas. His own culinary schooling came from the school of experience. While working as a carpenter, the harsh winters did not supply a lot of jobs, so he went to work at a local hotel and put his cooking skills to use. This was the beginning of a long career in restaurants, resorts, entertainment complexes and hotels.
 Criss was the largest outside content contributor to Hoffman Media’s book The Entertaining Touch. Some of his recipes can be also found in that book and in subsequent Hoffman Media magazines. He retired earlier this year from the Doubletree Hotel. In 2017, Criss will be opening Smiley Brothers Specialty Foods, a specialty butcher shop with cheeses and ready-to-heat meals-to-go

August 6th Market

Helena Market Days
Yes, folks. It's time for Tomato Sandwich Day at the market again! Please join us this Saturday, August 6th, from 9 to 11 a.m,  at the Helena Amphitheater for free sandwiches,  served by our own Helena Belles. Sure you can make them at home, but they're just not the same unless they come right off the farmers' tables.

The terrific local duo "Intermission" will grace our stage one last time this year on Saturday, August 6th, from 9 to 11 a.m. Barbara Snyder and Josh Arnold have been troupers this year, so please come out to hear and support them. No cover charge!

The LifeSouth bloodmobile will visit Helena Market Days for the final time this year on Saturday, August 6th. Even if you don't want to shop, please come to the market to give blood between 8 a.m. and noon. All types are needed and summer is the period of greatest demand, so please go out of your way to help out.
