Market News for this Saturday, May 24
Farmers and vendors stocked up and ready to go? Check. New Market Manager on board? Check. Business, Artist, and Musician of the Week lined up? Check. Good weather predicted? Check. Popcorn cart warming up? Check and mate. Sounds like the Lansdowne Farmers Market is as ready as we’re going to be to kick off the 2008 Market season! (Popcorn cart?? Yes, popcorn cart. See below.)
Helpful as we try to be, we’ve put together a to-do list for your Market day:
Featured This Week
Business of the Week: Does anyone in Lansdowne remember when Claire McShane of Mom Mom’s Cookies wasn’t baking her perfect and perfectly delicious confections? Claire not only mixes, cuts, and bakes the things, she paints them so nicely that it’s a challenge to bring yourself to ruin one by eating it. If you’re seeing friends this long weekend, wow them with a dozen or so of Mom Mom’s Cookies, or place your order for graduation cookies now (in school colors, naturally), before she’s fully booked.
Artist of the Week: We’re lucky to be having a local showing by Lansdowne-based Studio 47 West, whose jewelry is sold at the Winterthur Gift Shop and in New York boutiques. The three designers specialize in pieces that make a statement, and they’ll be on hand to help you pick out a piece that both complements your features and suits your style.
Musician of the Week: David Falcone, psychology professor cum guitarist cum singer, will be entertaining the crowd with acoustic stylings of his own compositions. And perhaps a lecture on Carl Jung. Guess we’ll see. (Music typically starts around 10:30.)
