VSN Farmer's Market booth

This year we are featuring Women’s T-shirts in five of our local watershed:  Kickapoo, West Fork, Bad Axe, Coon Creek, and Tainter’s Creek.  Like the unisex T-shirts, these are also 100% organic cotton and printed with sustainably produced inks!  The women’s shirts are more fitted and are available in smaller sizes.  We also have men’s T-shirts for all the watersheds.  
If you can’t visit us at the Farmers Market, the T-shirts are available from our website shop:
