Hi Folks! Saunderskill has been closed for about 9 weeks now and I have to admit I am starting to miss you all! We are in mid-February now, approaching March which is kind of a marker for us. One month to opening day. This year we open on April 1st for those of you who are wondering! Approximately 6 weeks away! We have been busy at Saunderskill cleaning, painting, staining and believe it or not still trying to clean away Irene. Here we are almost 3 years later and still finding signs of that crazy storm that swept through our town. My Dad has said countless times 'We should mark where the water level was' and I think yeah that sounds like a good idea, but I am not going to be the one to draw on your wall with a permanent marker! For those of you who know my Dad and or frequent the Market you know that everything is clean and has it's place! Well this year I did it. Not on the wall though NO WAY!
