2010-04-01 · By Editor
The East Village Farmers Market is becoming a fun place to have lunch on Saturdays. For the past couple weeks, Catalyst Community and Raw Inspiration has partnered together to add a more inviting climate to the Saturday morning East Village Farmers Market on 1st Street between Linden Avenue and Elm Avenue. The Market is open from 9:00am – 2:00pm with scheduled entertainment beginning at 11:00am. Each week’s line up may feature local artists, musicians, dancers, performers, poets and/or spoken word artists followed by an Open Mic.
This week, on Saturday, April 3, The Kids from A2Z will be performing at the Market. They are a youth vocal group consisting of friends from the ages of 4 to 19. Each of the performers brings their own style of music into the group. They started singing at a local coffee shop one year ago and the group has since grown to include 22 kids who all love to sing and perform. Since it’s inception, The Kids from A2Z have performed at community festivals, fairs, shopping centers, malls, car shows and other awesome events. Keep an eye out for The Kids from A2Z because they’re ready to Rock N Roll in 2010!
The Market will also feature local spoken word artist Lethia Cobbs.
