The Clark Park Farmers’ Market has just released information on their summer-long festivities, all of which start today, June 26th, and will continue every Thursday during the summer. The weekly event will feature Vendy Award winning food trucks, a free 7-week outdoor film series, prizes and demonstrations.
And what’s on schedule for today? The food trucks lining up for Awesome Fest, the free summer long outdoor movie series, will be Poi Dog, Curbside Creamery, Mom-Mom’s Polish Food Cart, Pie Stand and Flavor Spot. Trucks open at 3 p.m and the movie, Riot on the Dance Floor, starts at 9 p.m. Plus free demonstrations, led by our very own Emily Teel, will be going on from 4 p.m. – 6 p.m. Attendees will learn how to preserve the fruit and vegetables from the farmers’ market in their own home. And you might even be able to snag a prize while you watch. The demonstrations will be a monthly event.
Clark Park is located at 43rd Street between Baltimore and Chester Avenues.
