Farmers Market 2015 Ahead; Artists Wanted
As we await the final Winter Market of the season on April 18, the Lansdowne Farmers Market committee is hard at work planning for the regular market season, which begins on May 23. Expect about 30 total vendors this year, with plenty of bi-weekly alternating ones for lots of variety; a complete schedule for the season will be finalized in the next few weeks.
As you probably know already, each week the market features an Artist of the Week, and there are a number of available spots in this year's schedule. If you're an interested artist, simply download and complete this application and email it to artist@LansdowneFarmersMarket.com; include some digital photos if possible.
And Crafts, Too!
Artistic types should also be aware that applications to exhibit at this year's Lansdowne Arts & Crafts Show are due by Wednesday, April 15. The show takes place from 9 am to 3 pm on Saturday, May 2 in the 30 N. Lansdowne Municipal Lot; rain date is Sunday, May 3.
Lansdowne's annual volunteer cleanup event, Keep Lansdowne Beautiful Day, is scheduled for 9:00 to noon on Saturday, April 11, and you can be a part of it! If you're interested in participating, please call 267-908-4254. Volunteers will meet at Lansdowne Borough Hall on cleanup day.
