Welcome Sunny Market Day!

Friday, July 21, 2017

Some things are worth waiting for and this past Market Day was one of them!  Sunshine!  Even with a forecast that promised heat and humidity, we were reveling in the first truly SUNNY Friday this market season!  The actual day was graced with breezes and shady corners, cool lemonade and cheerful participants….

Corn and beans, swiss chard and beets, squashes…tomatoes ripening to fuller flavor each week – there was a rainbow of good eating available at every turn…

Our Credit/Debit and SNAP table has moved to a location directly across the “green” from the CLT Market Table.  Keep your eye peeled for Julie who is  there to answer any questions and enable credit and debit transactions at all our vendor tables.  SNAP cards are WELCOME.

 

To compliment and round out summer meals, our shoppers have come to rely on Meadowbrook Inn‘s wide assortment of freshly prepared foods.  From tzatziki (You don’t have to be able to spell it to enjoy its deliciousness…) to guacamole to empanadas to a variety of salsas to eggplant parmesan….you’ll have an international taste tour!  The list of offerings is long and varied.  Stop by to check out each week’s choices.

 

 

Toward the back of the market, under the trees, every market day you will find Children’s Art Activities – a special one coordinated by volunteers from the Church of the Holy Spirit.

 

 

Just a couple steps over, there are the alpacas, Gandolf and Carl, working their magic…and who can resist them? Certainly not this little sweetie who seems to be making a new friend.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Our special guests this week included the Dennison Pequotsepos  Nature Center with close up views of some very tiny animal neighbors….  

Heading around the market perimeter were representatives from ReStore, a local affiliate of Habitat for Humanity and purveyor of good quality used furniture, appliances, tools and more.

Right next door to ReStore was Eric from Sol Power, the local representative for  Solarize Charlestown

Charlestown residents were invited to learn more about the incentives for solar arrays for their homes.

We were lucky on Friday….From the  beginning of the market right until the end we ALL enjoyed Peter Weremay‘s music!

         

In addition to ALL this, we welcomed several NEW vendors!  Stop by this coming week to meet them….and check next week’s posting for formal introductions!

            

This coming Friday, July 28th, bring your UNWANTED ELECTRONICS to be recycled by Indie Recycling, a local business that will take care of your discarded computers, TVs, cell phones, cables, wires, and much more…..What they take…

We’ll have DEM Fish and Wildlife with us so stop by with your questions and check out what they have to offer.

Music on Friday will be provided by Tom Burgess, another one of our CLT Market favorites.
