Grand Junction, CO. does make a splash on Thursday nights for the Downtown Farmers' Market from 6/11 - 9/17. The Farmer's Almanac says for 2009, there will be rain every Thursday! Even in our desert! So far, so good. But the people are catching on, showing up anyway - with umbrellas. Didn't know anyone had any here! [a good thing to sell] Last week was the first week it rained but didn't BLOW! There were three or four of us holding down our canopy two weeks ago. Horrid. But it was good on the 2nd of July even with rain.
Vital Wonders Boutique is represented, with the other great individualistic shops in Historic White Hall Village, at the Farmers' Market in Grand Junction. We share a great booth, trying to spread the word about White Hall Village and all it has to offer. Come see us in front of The Avalon Theater - Main Street, next to Enstrom's Ice Cream booth. Lots of music playing next to us and various performers throughout the evening.
What is Grand Junction's Farmers' Market? Well it is what Grand Junction, Palisade and its outlying region's produce; fruit, veggies, produce of all kinds, plants, dried fruits and foods; the arts and crafts, jewelry, candles, woodworkers, iron works, pottery ...; imports; water systems and spas; religious persuasions and great food offerings this year including the Mennonite's food booth - great as always. Lots of entertainment like belly dancers, musicians, bands, jugglers, face painters and more!
People come from all over the Western Slope for the great produce and crafts and to walk with their kids and to show off their dogs and other pets. It is a great evening in Grand Junction from 4:30 to 8:30 every Thursday. Please come and have some fun and don't forget to visit Historic White Hall Village two blocks north of Main Street at White Ave. and 6th Street. We are serving free lemon-aid from 5:00 - 6:00pm and from 6:00 - 8:00pm is the new home for the Ceremonial Drum Circle, on the steps at 6th and White Ave at White Hall Village.
Whenever in the area please drop by Vital Wonders Boutique and chat with me at #305; that is on the 3rd floor, next to Confluence Books, Moe Ping's Cool Things, Peace in Love with Ariadne's Threads, all above Heart of the Dragon on the 2nd floor and The Wandering Gypsy on floor #1. It is a great way to spend an afternoon and evening!
