The National Seed Swap Day is designated as the last Saturday in January. The Market celebrated the event with a Seed Swap and Share opportunity for the public. In addition, information regarding saving and starting the seeds was given by Josie Walker from the Black Seed Saving Collective and Joni Young-Torres, Pitt County's Community Garden Coordinator.
And we would like to recognize and thank the sponsors for the event:

On January 21, 2023, the Market hosted a Card Decorating Station to create and decorate Valentine's Day cards for homebound senior citizens in Pitt County. The Market will continue to collect cards until Saturday, February 4, 2023.
All entries need to include a nice message to a Senior Citizen on the inside of their card.

Decorating Tips: Use acrylic paint if you wish to paint your card, add sparkles, feathers or sequins with glue. Decorate the front of your card and be sure to put a Special Heartfelt Wish inside!! Have FUN!
