The Pleasant Valley Boys will bring their bluegrass music to Picnic in the Park on Wednesday. The band includes Jim Allison, fiddle; Matt Dudman, mandolin; Mark “Cousin Rainwater” Eagleton, string bass; George Goodell, banjo; and Jenny Lynn, guitar. The band will be selling their latest CD release, “It’s Opry Time,” at this performance.
The market is open 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. Summer season is in full swing with plenty of melons, apricots, nectarines, peaches, plums, greens, corn, avocados, tomatoes, peppers and strawberries plus local eggs, honey, wine, beef and lamb. Crafts are at the north end of Central Park, near Fourth and C streets.
“Bring those summer house guests and the whole family to show them a good time at one of our country’s best farmers markets,” a news release said.
Bring a picnic from home or buy dinner from one of the many vendors. Davis Soroptimists will pour Sudwerk beer and local wine, with proceeds going to local charities.
Children’s entertainment includes Central Park’s bicycle-powered carousel, Rocknasium’s climbing structure, bounce houses, face-painting, pony rides by Greenwich Acres and balloon-maker Dilly Dally the Clown.
