After a long, hot summer, it’s time to come out and enjoy the great weather, meet the neighbors and enjoy live music, awesome food, a voter registration drive and some of the most reasonable prices around for produce and other locally produced goods at the Lincolnville Farmer’s Market Fall Music Fair this Sunday from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.
“We want to welcome back from vacation customers, Flagler students and visitors as well as thank our ‘regulars’ for supporting us all summer,” says market manager Lenny Rutland.
After moving market activities and booths under the trees in front of the Galimore Center this summer, the market will now return to the south end of the park.
Opening the fair will be highlights from the sponsoring Limelight Theatre and their current production, “Big River,” a family friendly musical about Huckleberry Finn.
Also featured will be popular local bands Hunter Miller, The Sweetest Punch and The Dewars.
Sponsor Scott Sweet of Grampa’s Music will provide professional sound.
Old Town Trolley Tours, another of the event’s sponsors will donate free round-trips for visitors from the Old Jail to the market every hour on the hour.
Prosperity Bank is also a sponsor, (helping keep the concert free!).
Vendors are offered three Sundays for the price of two, and the market expects to be packed with an array of choices including luscious barbecue, crab cakes, jerk chicken, tacos, arts and crafts, yummy baked goods, cheeses and a cornucopia of fresh produce.
The League of Women Voters will also be on hand with a voter registration table where you can register, change an address, change your name or your party.
Market-goers will find free parking, a playground for the kids, bike racks, and plenty of lawn to spread a blanket or plunk down a chair and listen to great music.
The Lincolnville Farmers’ Market, sponsored by the nonprofit community organization, Lift Up Lincolnville Revitalization Corp., is currently applying for a license from the USDA in order to honor SNAP and WIC so that everyone, regardless of finances, can enjoy access to healthy food.
“The market is a community effort and if you haven’t been down here in a while, we invite you to come and join us for some great music, affordable produce and healthy food. It’s going to be a great time,” says Lift Up Lincolnville and market board member Sue Agresta.
The Lincolnville Farmer’s Market is located at Eddie Vickers Field at 399 Riberia St. Follow detour signs due to road construction on the south end of Riberia.
