For the second year since beginning, the Avon Farmers Market Craft Fair was a big draw for locals and visitors from away. Vendors participating in the event were also from the immediate area as well as those who travelled to attend.
Organizers were very pleased with the day which began as they greeted early shoppers who were beginning to line up before the doors opened at 10 am. The constant flow of foot traffic continued throughout the day with several sellers nearly running out of stock and supplies as the day wound down.
As part of the downtown merchant’s waterfront concert series we were pleased to catch Ryan Harvey and Noah Shankel perform on July 20 at the waterfron gazebo. In this performance Ryan Harvey plays a song he wrote and just recorded to CD; “Letter to Jesus”. Ryan can be reached at: https://www.facebook.com/ryan.harvey.10441
