Visit Pupuseria & Taqueria El Solectto for freshly made to order agua frescas, pupusas and tacos. See Sweet Babe for mini churros, mini pancakes or mini waffles topped with fruits, whipped cream, and other delights Finally, please visit our arts and crafts vendors and the great selection of handcrafted art! The College Park Community Food Bank and Hollywood farmers market are partnering on a canned food drive. Bring your unexpired canned goods to the market and leave them at the market management tent. Look for the tall white bag with the College Park Community Food Bank logo on it.

This week John is out in Idaho for the National Fiddle Championships where he is the backup guitarist of choice by 60% of the contest fiddlers!  Which means I’ll have the pleasure of another week of picking with Mike Lessin.  For those of you who don’t know, Mike is one of the area’s most acclaimed guitarists – fresh off an all-star gig this week with the Capitol Area’s finest musicians – Mike is the lead guitar player for Late As Usual and Zydeco Jed – both well-known local bands you can catch most any weekend at the bigger venues around town.  Support your local musicians!  We will see you Saturday morning! Rumor has it Patrick O’Donnell and his fiddle may be there for a set: Patrick is a Peabody-trained violinist who mostly plays jazz these days, it’s an honor to have him sit in with us.

See you tomorrow!
