Patrons of the July 2 Druid Hill Farmers Market were treated to a free concert featuring Swift Smoke and the Sparks. According to the Friends of Druid Hill Park, who made the recent announcement, Swift Smoke is a sprawling collection of particularly stinky players based in Baltimore.DruidHillsFarmersMarket2

Their performance marked the return of the Market Concert Series that will happen, 5:20 to 7:30 p.m., the first Wednesday of each month, on the lawn next to the Howard Peters Rawlings Conservatory and Botanic Gardens. Bringing lawn chairs is a good idea.

The farmer’s market is open every Wednesday from 3:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m., June 4 – September 24.  In addition to great produce, the Druid Hill Farmers Market features weekly programs including: horse rides, plant workshops and free weekly yoga.
