Chamber’s market on, music benefit canceled
Chamber E

One event being put on by the Escalon Chamber of Commerce is scheduled for Wednesday, May 15 while a second, originally planned for Saturday, May 18 has been canceled.

Residents are reminded that the Chamber is hosting its third Wednesday of the month Farmer’s Market through August, with the second installment due on May 15. The first market in April was very well attended and featured dozens of vendors.

The weather forecast for this month’s event has considerably higher temperatures in the forecast than the April 17 opener – with a high of 90 degrees possible – but organizers are still hopeful for a big turnout.

More fresh produce will be offered, along with the handmade and handcrafted items, musical entertainment, toys, jewelry, sweet treats and the food court area, all set up in the city’s Main Street Park. The monthly market runs from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Future Farmer’s Market dates are Wednesdays, June 19, July 17 and Aug. 21. In September, the Chamber is planning its annual Wine and Brew Stroll for Saturday, Sept. 21 from 5:30 p.m. to 9 p.m.; October will bring the Harvest on Main event the first Sunday of the month, Oct. 6 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Looking a little further ahead, the annual Christmas on Main has been added to the schedule for Saturday, Dec. 7 from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.

Meanwhile, a popular fundraising event for musical programs at Escalon High School, the Tea and Trumpets, has been canceled. It was to be staged at Lorina’s Edible Garden on May 18 but organizers said a conflict with another event prompted them to make the decision to cancel it at this time. For those that purchased tickets and need more information about the cancellation, contact Sonya Huff at 209-484-4465 or Debbie Murken at 209-402-0505.
