We had Worms at the Market last Sunday. Not the kind you might think of when you consider the venue, but a singing duo (they are usually a trio, but the bass player couldn’t make it).
They are high school students, playing covers of songs recorded before they were born - and pretty successfully! They added a nice atmospheric to a beautiful day. Jake’s hair alone is worth the price of admission.

Barry and I took some general pictures of the Market. Here are a few:
Anne the Signmaker prepared a fresh chef demo sign on-site. Does that count as performance art?
Work In Progress
Our chef, Brittany Brodfuehrer of Café Rio, cheerfully dispensed advice, prize t-shirts for audience pop quizzes, discount coupons, and of course samples. She demonstrated how to prepare Guacamole and Pico de Gallo, served with Sweet Barbacoa and fresh corn chips.

Some Even Take Notes
And here’s a scoop: we will have a Hot Pepper Eating Contest on August 31 at 1:00 p.m., after the chef demo, as the Market will be open until 3 p.m. See the Market website for details. Meanwhile, here’s a preview:

I’ll be gone for the next two Markets, so no report on OFAM on this blog from me - although you might be seeing some posts from London and Copenhagen!
