Don't check us off your list yet
Doesn’t it seem like the second half of August is just one big checklist? Waterpark visit? Check. Last camping trip? Check. Summer library books returned? Check. And we all know what comes next on the list: school haircuts, school clothes shopping, school supplies. Check, check, check. Summer is over. Che….Wait! Summer is NOT over, at least not at the Sundquist Pavilion in Riley Park. The Farmers Market keeps summer going straight through October! Still to come:
- September 7 is our Fall Feelings market, as if we needed reminding that summer is ending. But the fall produce that will be available makes the changeover that much easier to swallow.
- September 14 is the Italian American Market, and what a lineup we’ve assembled! There will be live entertainment with the Amici Band, rustic pizza baked in a brick oven, fresh pasta and homemade desserts, and vino at the Market’s Bella Cantina.
- Also September 14: the last regular Kids Pop! Club meeting, which will also celebrate the Italian heritage with zucchini noodles and tastings of basil and tomatoes.
- October 5 brings Polish American Day with Polish dancers, cultural food, fashion statements, special music, the whole kielbasa.
These are just the highlights. Remember that every market is a celebration. And the memories that all those celebrations create will linger well beyond fall. Check? Check.
