GREETINGS from the Friends of Sarasota County Parks

As it happens, FOSCPNews is travelling in the upper reaches of Northernmost Maine, where it’s been vibrant, warm, and glowing with color.
We have just a few reminders for now, but will return to our regular programming soon.
 Get set for a brilliant Autumn — Sarasota’s Fall Season is just beginning.

Phillippi and Englewood Markets are Back this week!
Phillippi Farmhouse Market opens today, Oct. 1.
The market opens at 9 a.m. and runs through 2 p.m. each Wednesday from October 1, 2014 through Wednesday April 29, 2015.
Enjoy local produce and home-made foods at the market, or take some home for a delicious and easy meal. Also, you’ll find local artisans with handicrafts, live music and the friendliest volunteers at the Welcome Tent to assist you.
Enjoy ample, free parking, handicap accessibility and know that well-behaved dogs on leash are welcome at the farmhouse market. On Oct. 29th, it’s Howl-O-Ween — dogs on parade at the market!

Englewood Farmers Market opens tomorrow, Oct. 2.
