Hope everyone has enjoyed the last few markets. Been busy moving so I haven't gotten on here to update the blog recently. But we have had some wonderful music and fun events the last few weeks.
This week at the Thursday market, we have two great musical groups; Never Strangers and Nichole Squared!Never Strangers is known for their upbeat and dance to the beat music. "Inspired by their Pacific Northwest home region, Never Strangers creatively blends threads of american folk, bluegrass, old time, and gospel traditions into a compelling and uniquely Northwest sound." Nichole Squared is a duo of 14 year old girls from Walla Walla. They have an eclectic mix of songs from Taylor Swift to Leonard Cohen. They are "talented multi-instrumental singer/songwriters that harmonize beautifully together." It will be a great evening of music!
Saturday will be our Aprons on Display event! It will be a great mix of aprons for sale and aprons displayed by vendors. So come to the market wearing your apron and be entered in our drawing for great products from our vendors! We will also Katch Josephy giving us great music to listen to while you shop the market looking at great products from fresh peaches to watermelons to squash to french pastries that melt in your mouth! And don't forget our beautiful jewelry and crafts made by our talented local artists! See you at the market!
