Heading into may it looks like May 3rd will be the next date with music by Dan Maguire. Saturday May 11th is the last date listed so far with music from Kristin Scholz. last year I got a chance to check out the market before they closed for the season and I have to say I loved it. Arts, crafts, food trucks and vendors. If you want to see what else is going on just go to It's a great family friendly event for everyone and personally I can't wait until April. At least it will be a bit warmer out there.
