Ligonier Country Market’ s “bake it, make it, grow it” philosophy will be on full display Saturday, as the market offers freshly grown or locally made food, shopping for arts and crafts, and entertainment on what is expected to be a very warm day.
Solo acoustic guitar player Wayne Shaffer will play classic soft rock and country songs as patrons mingle and visit the vendors. His repertoire includes cover songs from The Eagles, Exile, Beatles, Jimmy Buffet, Alan Jackson, Gordon Lightfoot, James Taylor, The Drifters, The Temptations, Eric Clapton and Bob Dylan, according to his website.
Representatives of the Westmoreland County Food Bank also plan to be on site for the June 30 market, sharing more information about the nonprofit organization.
On June 26, the food bank lost more than 3,000 pounds of food and a truck after it caught fire in North Huntingdon.
Daisy Mae will again host a kids’ craft in the children’s garden, one that steers away from typical crafts, according to a market news release.
Participants will visit the Fort Fries booth to learn how potatoes grow and turn into the fries available for purchase at the market.
Kids will have a chance to cut fries and give them a free taste test,.
