The fifth annual Montgomery County Strawberry Festival takes place Saturday, May 16, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at White Oak Middle School. In addition to sampling juicy local strawberries, attendees can also experience live music, fair-style rides, face painting, and food samples from local vendors. A portion of the proceeds benefit these related charitable programs: 200 local foster and sheltered children enjoying the Strawberry Festival event, WIC and Senior Matching Dollars Nutrition Program at White Oak Farmers Market, and 15 full and 15 partial scholarships given for Summer Farm Day Camp.
Milk Lady Markets
Gigi Goin is the driving force behind the network of fresh produce markets and food festivals that live under the Milk Lady Markets umbrella. Born in Trinidad, Gigi grew up around an abundance of produce markets, farms, and home gardens. It instilled in her a lifelong appreciation for farmers and the need for consumers to be closely connected to food producers. And in 2010, her love of fresh, healthy food—Gigi was a vegan for 12 years and is now a pescetarian—spurred her to create Milk Lady Markets, which comprises multiple producer-only farmers' markets throughout Montgomery County. The organization also oversees festivals throughout the year, including the annual Strawberry Festival in late spring.
