Weather Update

Today's forecast is for sun, sunny, and some puffy clouds!

PREVIOUSLY AT THE MARKET

More great weather greeted the Market and shoppers. Last week. We moved Sunscape's tent closer to Monroe Avenue to grab more attention from walkers and drivers. It seemed to work!

Larry at Farm Boy pays careful attention to the ingredients of his spice rubs.

Goats are infamous for eating anything. Maybe hibiscus is spicy!

MUSIC THIS WEEK

Allen Hopkins

Allen Hopkins plays folk music: American traditional, Celtic instrumental, a bit of Yiddish, blues, bluegrass, old timey, and contemporary. Intimacy is one of the things that he has always loved about folk music - the lack of distance between performer and audience. Here, in the paradoxical one-on-one closeness of our impersonal electronic community, we can talk directly.

With varying degrees of expertise, he plays guitar, banjo, mandolins of all sizes, Autoharp, English concertina, harmonica, bass (acoustic and electric), Dobro, Appalachian dulcimer, ukulele, and other odd instruments from tiple to kalimba.

COMMUNITY TENT THIS WEEK

Monroe Branch Library

Teen librarian Rebecca Hudson will host the Community Table this week. In addition to offering free books for your summer reading, Rebecca can suggest books for the teen reader in your family. Ask her about upcoming programs offered by our local branch library. See a short selection of the offerings below.

Book Discussion

Wednesday, August 28 at 1:30 pm. “Blueprint: The Evolutionary Origins of a Good Society” by Nicholas A. Christakis.
