Mother’s Day Weekend at the Market!
Mother’s Day Weekend at the Market!

Still struggling to think of something unique for Mom this weekend? How about a gift from the Urbana Market at the Square? I got my Market Mail today (subscribe at http://tinyurl.com/cec28c3), and it gave me tons of ideas. My mom LOVES potted plants and hanging baskets – the Market offers up a great selection of those, as well as freshly-cut flowers.

If your mother is into arts and crafts, the Market at the Square is the perfect place to shop (AND to support local artists).  And as you know, it’s graduation season, too. The talented Market vendors offer an array of high quality and often custom-made gifts. This time of year those folks really take center stage, as the number of farmers and producers is smaller than during peak season.

Best idea of all? BRING YOUR MOM to the Urbana Market at the Square this Saturday from 7-noon! She’ll love Art at the Market & Performance at the Market. This weekend features low tech printmaking with Lisa Kesler from 8 a.m.-noon.  From 9:30-11:30 a.m. enjoy Desafinado – a seven piece ensemble that plays bossa nova, samba, and popular Brazilian music. Shop, socialize, eat breakfast, and stroll the Urbana Market at the Square, on the corner of Illinois and Vine.
