This week at the HFM
Flowers, flowers and more flowers - along with all the produce we love. Above: Kathy Looney of Luand Farm stands behind some of her offerings at last week's market. Kathy is a long-time vendor at the HFM.
     This week, the HFM welcomes new vendor Cross Street Flower Farm; they will be selling beautiful flowers from their gardens in Norwell. To see the flowers available during the spring, summer and fall, go to their site: and when you see them on Saturday, ask them about their "flower shares."
     Frankly, one can never have enough fresh flowers in life.
     A reminder: 
On the Edge knife sharpening will be at the HFM this Saturday, July 9. Certainly there are market-goers out there who need sharpened knives to slice barbecue favorites.

Featuring . . . the HFM at the July 4th Hingham Parade
It was a fabulous 4th and the Hingham Farmers Market figured quite prominently in the Hingham parade. Beginning top row, left: HFM president Mark Cullings was this year's parade Grand Marshal; in this photo he is being driven in his own TR-6 by Tom "Hoffy" Hoffman of the Hingham Parade Committee and himself a past Grand Marshal; to note a few of Mark's contributions to the town: he is a former chairman of the Hingham School Committee, a member of the group that "rescued" the Hingham Farmers Market and made it into the great HFM we know today, and currently a moving force behind the Hingham Heritage Museum, now under construction at Old Derby Academy; top center: float participants from the HFM and the All Paws 4H Cat and Dog Club; top right: Jim Vernon, HFM float driver and chief float designer; middle row, left: Max Schiller pauses for a patriotic moment; middle center: the HFM float, with Jamie Rossano and Emily Hutchinson holding the banner and Nola Mullins (in apron) and Maggie Levy (both on left side) and Bev Vernon walking along the sides; center right: float participants Charlotte Marshall, Jamie Rossano and Jess Cheu; bottom row, left: Owen and Eleanor Levy were "stars" on the HFM float; bottom center: Max and Sarah Schiller and Henri and Olivier Anne having fun on the float; bottom right: Mike Mullins and daughter Nola at the start of the parade. Many thanks to everyone who helped out and a special shout out to Sarah Schiller - age 12 - who took many 
of these photos. Well done, all!
