The Union Square Farmers’ Market is back! Well, almost. June 10 – Oct 28, in the heart of Union Square, ever Saturday 9am – 1pm.
We are looking for volunteer musicians to perform at the market. It’s a great neighborhood atmosphere with a lively crowd. The Farmers’ market will be joined by the Craft Market (featuring local artists and craftsters) every Saturday between July 22nd and Oct 7th.
We can provide a large tent, some seating, and access to outlets. You are welcome to sell CDs or promote upcoming shows and put out a hat for tips. This is a great way to play outdoors and support the community. It’s an unpaid gig, but in the past the market has received a lot of press and attention for combining food, art, and entertainment.
Last year the music was really well received, with a few complains about the loud bands, so we are looking for anything that is family friendly and not too loud. The primary focus of the market is buying and selling local foods and crafts and the atmosphere should be welcoming and comfortable. We are open to all kinds of music reflecting the cultural diversity of Union Square.
Interested? Email MaryCat — UnionSquareMarket@gmail.com Please include a few dates that will work for you.
Thanks for your support!
