A new month is upon us at the Chester Farmers’ & Artisan Market. August is a busy month for many people and we hope you make shopping at the market part of your August agenda.
This Friday is a kid’s day with student workers from the Chester Recreation Department coming to provide a few games and fun activities for the little ones from 10:30 till 12:30. They meet over in the grassy area behind the vendors directly across from the Visitor Information Centre’s main door.
For our musical entertainment this week we welcome Clas Larsson, a jazz musician who plays tenor sax and clarinet. He will be sure to liven up the market as he strolls around playing. We also have some young performers from the summer theatre program of the Chester Playhouse who are going to sing a couple of songs as a ‘warm-up’ for their August 12th-15th production at the playhouse – what a great way to promote their upcoming event! We are very excited to have so much musical talent happening this week!!
In our Community Booth we will have Elizabeth and Andrew Corkum, two dedicated volunteers for leukemia and lymphoma, who will be selling apple salsa as a fundraiser and to raise awareness. The apple salsa is amazing so be sure to try a sample and support such a worthy cause.
