October 15, 2016 Market Day
playful-pelican-promo-pic-croppedWe will have a special family event this week!  You and your families are invited to take part in a Pop-Up Adventure Playground from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. at and beside our Kid’s Activity Tent. This is a free, public celebration of child-directed play, stocked with “loose parts” such as cardboard boxes, tape, and string. A temporary version of the classic adventure playground model, this create-your-own-adventure play space gently introduces themes of risk and freedom by welcoming people of all ages and abilities to play and create together. Have a large cardboard box to share? Bring it with you! Organized by The Playful Pelican in partnership with Pop-Up Adventure Play.

And, before we go on, don’t forget:
Volunteers ALWAYS welcome and needed!
You can sign up here for one or more spots and tasks throughout the entire season.

As of Thursday afternoon, we need THREE for Setup and THREE for breakdown!!!  Our regulars can’t come and Heather and I could really use the help!!!!  Also, due to cancellations, we still need one person for each the 9-11 and the 11-1 tables spots, and  as always, we could also use someone – or two – to get the highway signs at the end of the day.

Also, you can always stop by and “shadow” another volunteer to learn what it is all about in preparation for next year.

And THANK YOU to Debbie and Sarah for already signing up for this week!

Okay – here is the preview:

  • Music by Kali Stoddard-Imari
  • Kid’s arts activity by The Playful Pelican
  • Tower Beverages, Aaronap Cellars, AND Downeast Cider!
  • West River Creamery is BACK!
  • Cooking Demo – You’ll have to wait and see.   

As always, along with accepting credit and debit cards, we also proudly welcome SNAP/EBT transactions in exchange for “Market Bucks.” Our market continues to match SNAP/EBT purchases up to $10 per visit so all of our neighbors can afford to eat healthy local foods. Just stop by the Market Manager Tent to get your Market Bucks.
