What's Fresh This Week: Friday, August 28th
Oh August we will miss you! We hope you will join us at tomorrow's Ludlow Farmers Market from 4-7p.m. on the front lawn of the Okemo Mountain School. It might be back-to-school time, but having the market still in session is comforting; hold on to summer as long as you can by supporting your local farmers and artisans.
SPECIAL EVENTS AT THE MARKET
Summer is for stretching and hopeful en plein air painters will find encouragement in the watercolor demonstrations by painter Bob Sydorowich of Andover at this week’s market. Inspired by the Impressionist movement, Sydorowich celebrates Vermont’s unique small town life and unspoiled countryside in his work. His demonstrations will take place throughout Friday's market.
