This Week at the Market – September 15, 2019

This Sunday is one of our favorite special events — the biennial Bicycle Collection Day, sponsored by Brighton Rotary Club! Please bring any bike in any condition, to be donated to R Community Bikes. Volunteers at this wonderful local organization will refurbish donated bikes and distribute them to kids and adults in our community who might not otherwise have access to bikes or transportation.
