May Market a Huge Sucess!

Despite the crazy weather, our opening day was amazing! The rain stopped just in time for our vendors to set up, and the sun came out in the afternoon for our awesome Rock-n-Romp concert series! Thanks to everyone who came out. We hope to see you at the next market on June 14th!
Here are some pictures from our big opening day:

Awesome Music Lineup!

This year, we have a great schedule of bands lined up to play at our events (see the music lineup under the vendor links to the right). For our big May 'kickoff' market on May 10th, we're thrilled to be working with Rock-n-Romp !!

Rock-n-Romp is a local concert series that invites local rock bands to put on kid-friendly concerts. In her own words Rock-n-Romp organizer, Debbie describes the shows as:

...a family friendly concert series that showcases fantastic local musicians and bands. Shows are held during the day in a relaxed, kid-safe environment, and while the volume is lower than a typical concert, the music still ROCKS. You may hear a kiddie song every once in a while, but these shows are about the kind of music you listened to BEFORE YOU HAD KIDS.


Our featured Musicians on opening day (5/10) are Carol Bui, Gist and Exit Clov!! We are extatic.
Come out and see the free show between noon and 4pm, while checking out all of our awesome vendors on the square (Market hours are 10am-4pm)
See you there!
