Music And Veggies Headed Toward Main Street

If you would like to see photos of the Founders Day activities or Relay for Life check out the Herald’s Internet website, Yalnews.com, and click on Herald Photo Galleries.

Because space in the newspaper is limited there are often great pictures that don’t make it to print. This is a chance to see more photos from each event. You can also purchase prints and the Herald has generously agreed to donate the money to the sponsors of the events.  So click, look and buy!

Wake Up Little Susie, it’s time to unpack your poodle skirt and put on your blue suede shoes for Music in the Park this Saturday.  Come Go with Me or do The Stroll with Long Tall Sally as you Shake, Rattle and Roll your way to Railroad Park.

Performing this week are the KGRoosters who play vintage rockabilly and 50’s style rock and roll.  Heading up this Nifty Fifties Water Valley flock is singer/guitarist Kevin Guyer. The band includes Vallians Eddie Wood on drums, upright bassist Doug Webb, and Daniel Spears, the resident piano player from the Big Truck Theater.

The performance, sponsored by the Chamber of Commerce, will begin at 7 p.m.  Bring a lawn chair or a blanket, enjoy a dinner of hamburgers or pizza and for the next two hours Rock Around the Clock.

The Main Street Farmers Market will be returning on Saturday, May 17. The first market will have garlic, onions, cut herbs and herbs in pots, cut flowers, English peas, cured meats, focaccia with homegrown herbs, hand ground grits and flour, and plants. There will also be a small selection of handicraft items.  

The Farmers Market will be located under the Magnolia trees in Railroad Park and will be open from 7 until 11.  For additional information, or if you are interested in being a vendor at the market, contact Justin McGuirk at 662-801-9273.   

Shopping at a Farmers Market has many benefits and one of the most important is that it’s good for you. Eating from farmers markets and cooking from scratch encourages you to eat more vegetables and fewer processed products, to sample a wider variety of foods, and eat more fresh food at its nutritional peak.
