Sample wine at the New Castle market

Last week at the New Castle Community Market, storm clouds and thunder threatened but thankfully blew right on by. Stone Kitchen was awesome: We could see people tapping and clapping to the music, enjoying every song. Music this evening is provided by Barry Anderson, who plays folk, Americana and original songs.

This week will be the first of two wine sampling events sponsored by New Castle Liquors. We want folks to know that proceeds from the event will go to benefit the 2017 annual Back-to-School Supply Drive. Come and enjoy the sampling while helping our students with the cost of their supplies for the new school year.

We feature the following vendors this week. Come by to see George W. Cunning III in New Castle Gardens’ booth to browse the selection of container gardens; vegetable starts ready and anxious to be in the ground; a variety of organic fertilizers; and, for those pesky grasshoppers, Nolo Bait. George will have some of his artwork from his gallery, Crack In the Wall, for sale, too. Connie Gilstrap with Mountain Skin Essence has a variety of skin care products, lotions and other things to pamper you with. Victoria Serna is back with her magic hands for massages and a new offering of “make your own” scrubs. There are fresh peaches and corn at Juicy Acres’ produce booth, and Laura Kolecki’s wonderful pickles at the market table at the entrance.

The New Castle Community Market takes place from 4:30-7:30 p.m. Thursdays in Burning Mountain Park until Sept. 21. Bring your ID, a chair and relax and enjoy the wine and great music.
