North End Farmer's Market July 8th

We're off to a running start! This week join us for the second market of the year on Friday July 8th from 10-2 at the corner of Liberty and Main.

Week 1 was an awesome success. The sidewalk was bustling with shoppers both young and old! We hope you'll join us again this week for another great market with music, crafts, and of course, fabulous fresh food.

We have great new things lined up for this year, including a kids craft area and the Double Dollars Program. Check out the new
market website for more info on these programs and for tons of other cool information!

Our guest vendors this week:

Sweet Harmony Cafe is a Middletown gem, serving delicious "inventive cuisine" from pastries to sandwiches.

Crystal's Hula Hoops provides hoops that are quality handmade and also beautiful. Come try out a hoop or two!

Mystic Hickory Syrup has a special nutty, woodsy, smoky flavor. And it's from Mystic, right down the road!

New Image Greenhouse brings us beautiful hanging baskets to decorate your porch, kitchen, or balcony.

*For more information on these great vendors, check out our official website.

Guest Musicians:
This week, enjoy the sounds of David Davis, a local music star! He'll be playing his favorites on saxophone, from R&B to soul. Feel free to make requests and dance along! From 12-1 pm.
Check out his website to listen to some clips:

Check out our KidsZone Craft Table!

We will have fun activities and crafts for kids to play with and explore. Bring your little ones by to make something cool!

Or, visit our North End Kids' Market!

If your kids attend the summer lunch program at the Salvation Army on Main St, they can walk over to the market and have $7 to spend on fresh fruit and veggies. It's a great program, and it teaches kids about budgeting, agriculture, environmentalism and nutrition. The kids market is funded in partnership with the Community Health Center and the City of Middletown Health Partnership Grant.
