Vol. 2 Issue 11 –  Most of what you need for your 4th of July cookout…

…can be found at the farmers market!  Meat to grill?  Stop by Waltz Farm’s stand.  There you can get the cheeses too.  Toppings for the burgers?  Valencia Produce, Calvert Farms and Dicot Farm have the leafy greens, tomatoes and onions needed to complete any sandwich.  Unique Eats and Scents will start selling pickles this weekend.  Nothing beats a burger with a dill pickle on top.  YUM!
You can also find all of your dessert needs at the market.  Pies, cupcakes and scones from Heavenly Created Desserts or Apple breads and muffins from The Baked Apple.  A nice cup of Alcoba coffee to complete the meal and give you the energy you need to head over to the University of Maryland and hear “The Night Life Band” preform before the fireworks.

We will have free face painting for the children this week as well as Double Sharp to preform for all.

Crest Hill Bakery will not be at the market this week.  They are taking a much deserved vacation and will be back the following week.
Designed Naturally will be away for the next few weeks and will return August 6th.

Ask the City
Latisha from the Parking/Finance Department of City Hall will be at the market to answer any questions you may have about on street parking, how to obtain a parking permit, etc.  Stop by and say hello.

MEET THE MUSICIAN: Eric Vespers (a member of the Double Sharp duo)

  Eric Vesper is a Maryland native and ex-academic who makes his home in Adelphi, where he runs the Buddhist Center Sakya Dokho Choling, practices Biodynamic farming, keeps an apiary and hosts musicians of all styles from around the country.
Eric is particularly interested in the musical traditions of Appalachia and Ireland, jazz, especially from the 1940’s, and classical, especially Bach.  Double Sharp’s repertoire reflects this, with an eclectic mix of styles and influences, hailed as one of the truly unique duos in the Metropolitan area.
Eric believes that community awareness and participation is essential to a productive and meaningful life.  He is thrilled to be a part of this market, which he feels has become an integral part of the local communities’ person.  Eric particularly enjoys Roy and Arti’s curry, as well as Crest Hill Bakery’s breads.  Eric also plays with Birds on a Wire at the Downtown College Park market on Sundays (10 to 2).
