She is one of the best banjo players this side of the Mississippi and has a voice that can crumble mountains.Yoga will be available for FREE in Moore Square next to Historic City Market.  This is a great way to unwind after a stressful day of work.Don’t miss out on the last of the season’s fresh tomatoes, eggplants, cucumbers, and much, much more.  You won’t find fresh produce like this at your neighborhood supermarket.  Meet the farmers who grow all your local produce, and get to know where your food comes from.  It’s too often we take this for granted: how lucky we are to have access to and the convenience of fresh and exemplary eatables.  At Raleigh City Farmers’ Market, you meet farmers, bakers, gardeners, and craftsmen. You learn what it takes to feed a community.BW Market2On that note, you can buy your tickets to the Farm Aid Hoedown @ Raleigh City Farm.
