The 95th Street Farmer’s Market has big plans for June. Face painting, children’s librarians from Beverly Branch library and Kellogg’s Garden Club are just a few of the exciting features that can be found this month in the commuter parking lot at 95th and Longwood Dr. The market is open every Sunday through Oct. 28 from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m., rain or shine.
The Community tent this month will feature Nautilus School in the community tent, Cavanaugh, face painting in the children’s tent, and music by Bridget Cavanaugh on June 3; Kellogg School Garden Club in the community tent, One Tail at a Time rescue and dog adoption, and music by Joel Barr on June 10; Beverly Branch Children’s Librarians in the community tent, face painting in the children’s tent and music by Beverly All Stars; and Beverly Art Walk in the community tent and music by Mark Taylor. These activities are scheduled 10 a.m. to noon.
New and old vendors come together for one of the neighborhood’s most popular summer events where neighbors can mingle while live music plays and munch on goodies from vendors like Sweet Freaks and Not Just Cookies, and explore healthy options from The Eating Well, Southtown Health Foods and Breadman, one of the market’s long-time vendors whose homemade bread forgoes artificial preservatives, colors and flavorings.
If you’re hungry while you’re shopping, stop by one of the vendors offering prepared foods.
Stroll through the many tents and fruit stands and enjoy the beginning of a perfect lazy Sunday.
