Throughout the years we purchase many gifts for our loved ones and typically these gifts are forgotten or tucked away in boxes. This year lets make things much more exciting for Dads, as Father’s Day is just a week away. With this in-mind we invite you to spend a few hours exploring the irreplaceable activities available at Frenchtown Farmers Market this month. As the market continues to positively impact our local community, by providing opportunities for local farmers, artists, musicians, chefs and varying businesses, it will be a fun filled month for you and your dear ol’ dad.
So this year, cast the suites, colognes, and ties aside and head over to Frenchtown Farmers Market where you’ll find great gifts for dad. Participating in one of the activities which will create a memory for a lifetime! Let’s take a look at this months activities:
- DIY Dad Gifts Market On June 11th the market has teamed up with Sweet Face Handmade Bath & Body Fusions, a local family business providing natural bath and body care for everyone! They offer a variety of natural products that nourish the skin which include cleanse, sooth, moisturize, relax, and exfoliate. This Saturday you’ll be able to make a free lemon body scrub for your dad or you can make this gift with your dad; regardless he’ll love this one of a kind gift!
- Second Saturday Every Second Saturday of the month Frenchtown hosts Open Mic. While browsing the park spectators are able to enjoy the melodies of local musicians, spoken word artists, and comedians as they grace the stage with their unique skills. Everyone is invited to share their family-friendly talents from 12pm-2pm.
- Dad Cooks! Market – Interested in a few new recipes for dad or a couple ideas on what to cook on Fathers day? Marvin Stokes, a farmhand for Deacon Ed Duffy, will be performing a live cooking demonstration on June 18th for all of our foodies! Marvin is a cook by trade and enjoys sharing the knowledge he has gained throughout the years with others. He has a college student starter cookbook with over 300 recipes that will make even the most novice of cooks seem like a world class chief.
- DIY Fresh Market – An innovative way to have fresh produce available for your family will be presented by iGrow Bucket. On June 25th Ed Toussaint will be demonstrating the techniques used to have these fresh veggies at your fingertips. iGrow bucket is a self watering system used to grow a variety of veggies and is made of a few 5 gallon buckets and a pvc tube. You can build this yourself or it can be purchased from iGrow. I’m sure dad or the entire family would absolutely love this as they’re spending a fraction of the cost for the same great veggies!
As you’re contemplating the next best gift for dad we’ve got you covered! So many activities and all in one month. We’re sure dad will stay busy at Frenchtown Farmers Market. We’re looking forward to seeing everyone there, from us to you- Happy Father’s Day Dads!
