Everywhere You Looked…..

….lively HAPPENINGS were underway!

Following a path across the Market Green brought attendees from one opportunity to another.  As always there was the shopping for premier locally harvested fare…And then SO much more!

HERA was with us, hosting the second annual Faerie House Making event complete with all the fixings…..All ages were welcome.

Just next door there was Music for the People brought to us by Tunes-n-Tales….a collection of singers and musicians who sang songs we knew and songs we didn’t.  They provided everyone with percussion instruments and blankets for sitting. We all played and sang along  with abandon.  Fun!

And then, it was time for The Ladies of the Rolling Pin, a group of dancers and musicians in the Morris Dance style tradition.  Imaginative in dress and dance steps, they contributed to the celebratory tone of the day.


 

 

 

 

 

There in the midst of the dancers was our very own Market Manager Sarah!

Just next door on the market green was South County Art Ass’n complete with a potter’s wheel for demonstration and opportunities to learn more about what is available at their Kingston studio.

 

 

All of this was in conjunction with our usual array of  vendors….The deliciously local food, quality products from nearby craftspeople, prepared herbal products, pure lotions and a booth staffed with people offering information about our beloved Charlestown.

 

                        

                                                                         

This coming Friday, Aug. 25th, be ready for COMMUNITY CELELBRATION TIME. Bring your instruments to jam, your songs and singing voices and there you will be – in the midst of the festivities.  We’ll be providing picnic fare, free for all!

Part of all the fun will be a chance to chat with people from the Wood-Pawcatuck Watershed Association and meet friends from the Charlestown Animal Shelter.

You can count on the Charlestown Land Trust Farmers’ Market to provide the freshest of fresh food, SNAP and Credit/Debit options, welcoming faces – always welcoming faces!  So Join Us!
