August Splendor...


Nature is really putting on a show this month with meteor showers and the upcoming solar eclipse. This is a special time of year at the market too. Sweet corn mingles with a glorious bounty of tomatoes in bright, sunshiney colors and pepper and peaches are piled high. The first hints of autumn begin to peek out from below the vendors' tents... the flowers start to take on the hues of fall in burgundy and gold and accented with shafts of wheat. Apples are arriving too.
Our Kids' Market stand returns this week and Last Small Town will fill the circle with their blue grass beat. Come join us in experiencing the beauty and taste of the season and the wonderful spirit of downtown Easton. You can even buy a special edition Eclipse coffee from Fieldstone!



Freshly cut flowers with shades of Fall, at Blooming Glen Farm


Locally Grown Music
Featuring: Last Small Town
Saturday 10am-Noon
Last Small Town plays everything from the brother duets of the 30s and 40s to the Stanley Brothers to Bill Monroe to country and rock covers. They also feature their own songs and plenty of bluegrass and old time fiddle tunes. So get ready to stomp your feet to the bluegrass beat at the EFM Music Tent on the North Lawn of the Circle.
