Friday, September 22 at the market! (Duck Race Edition)

Greetings Neighbors,

The Richmond Farmers Market is open from 3:00pm-6:00pm this Friday on Volunteers Green in Richmond. It should be a lot of fun with live music music from The Fog a Richmond-based band that plays acoustic-folk- rock-jam music to keep you moving your toes and put a smile on your face!

The Duck Race is on! Support the non-profit Radiate Art Space to raise money to restore their windows in the Town Center – lower level.  Having natural light in the art studio will make a huge difference to everyone creating there.  You can buy your ducks on the day – $20 for 5 ducks or $5 each. Ducks will be dropped off the red bridge and float down the Winooski River at the end of the Farmer’s Market — approx. 6pm. There are great prizes, too: the first duck to cross the finish line will win $100 in cash.  Second place is a $50 gift card to Hatchet, with third place a $25 gift card to Sweet Simone’s. Please support this great community event!

We’ll also have face painting for kids and kids at heart presented by REAP Construction. Plus fresh local food, and amazing crafts from local artisans! We’re always happy to feature local meat, fresh produce, talented artisans, incredible baked goods, sweet syrups, honey, jams, and delicious drinks for everyone to enjoy.
