Farmers Market opened Saturday

by Brandy Nance, Gazette reporter
Saturday’s Farmers Market offered market-goers everything from fresh spring vegetables to items from the Sleepy Hollow General Store.
Debra and David Arb, who produce Sleepy Hollow Natural Skin Care products, were at the market Saturday with a general store built of old barn wood.
Arb said she has been at the market since this past September. She was at the market with soap, lip balm and other skin products. She uses all-natural ingredients and makes everything herself. She said she started with soaps five to six years ago and then got into creams this past July. Arb has more than 30 different herbs on her shelves.
“I’ve always loved anything natural,” she said. “Herbs are an important thing in our lives. I’ve always been interested in flowers and botanicals.”
Arb said she plans on being at the market all summer with her products.
