SPLENDOR IN THE GLASS

We’re feeling so many feelings this week. It’s the second visit ever from new vendors the Brownie Center and Wachusett Naturals. Yay! But it’s the last week this season for our beloved Aaronap Cellars. Boo! But you can still get a bottle or 12 of Aaronap’s delicious Stonewall White. Double yay! And then you can grab a patch of lawn for a free concert on the Condon Shell stage by roots-rockers the Swinging Steaks at 6pm. Triple yay! And it’s still summer for another week—plus, by Thursday, it’ll almost be Friday. Triple doggie yay! Whew, OK. We worked it out. Everybody pumped? See ya at the market, 3–7pm Thursday at Condon Shell.
