Market Band- In the Key of E

This group of musicians played lively, toe-tapping tunes at St. Jacobs Farmers Market on November 13th. The seated guitarist announced the musical key of E to the others and they improvised the tunes from there. It was the first time I have seen a group of shoppers give a round of applause to market musicians.

The Fritter Co.

If you plan to go the the St. Jacobs Farmers Market tomorrow, make sure you get in the Apple Fritter line EARLY. If you end up getting there by 11 AM – 12 PM, you may be stuck in the line for about 45 minutes. If you’re like me and decide to go at those times anyway, I assure you, it is well worth the wait. Sliced apples coated with batter, deep fried, then coated with cinnamon sugar makes it the best breakfast ever…

Also coming up this weekend – today is also the beginning of Culture Days. At The Conrad Centre of Performing Arts is Round:About / Pluralism in Performance, which begins at 8pm. There will be music and theatrical performances inspired by many different cultures, and, it’s a free event.

In Wellesley is the Apple Butter and Cheese Festival.

Also on Sunday at Victoria Park is The Word on the Street Festival.

Musicians at Cambridge Farmers’ Market

We went to the Cambridge Farmers’ Market last weekend for the first time and really liked the setting and the vendors who were there. These musicians played their instruments outside the market building.
