June 18 & 21 Market Preview

YMCA at the Kid's Tent our first Saturday
It's hard to believe this is already our third week in our 2014 season!  Our second Saturday was not as busy as we hoped, most likely due to the unusually chilly and rain threatening weather, but we hope this week brings warmer sun filled days!!
Healthy Harvest Gardener Michael Scott joined in
with our musicians last Saturday!
This week brings a new artist & musician, a IRMC dietitian featured in the Kid's Tent, and a LIVE FOOD DEMONSTRATION & samples at Saturday's market by Nap's Cucina Mia chef Nick Karas.  Last year when Karas prepared the live food demo it was quite the treat and crowd pleaser, so we are excited to see what delicious creation he comes up with this Saturday!
New to Wednesday's market for this week, we will be featuring returning artisan Chere Winnek-Shawer in our Artisan Tent.
