SLOUP Results Are In

Last night, a small crowd gathered at Black Bear Bakery to vote between proposed projects of the North City Farmers' Market and Floating Laboratories.

Congratulations goes to Floating Laboratories, who won $220 to get the "Float Your Face Music Festival" off the ground. Visit SLOUP's blog to read more about FL's music festival, which is scheduled for May.

Thank you to everybody who showed up to support the market!

We have another fundraiser coming up in May, a TRIVIA NIGHT at the Old North Restoration Group. More details to come.

We still need to raise the money needed to close the street on market days and to pay musicians and other performers to liven up the market with their talents. Let us know how you can help!

The North City Farmers' Market will be featured at this month's SLOUP, on Easter Sunday. Please come and support the Market!

SLOUP is a unique fundraiser for arts/charity initiatives. You pay $10 for an evening of soup & salad, and groups give a presentation about their particular charity. Then you get to vote on who receives all the funds from that evening's entrance fees!

We hope to use the money generated from this fundraiser to pay for permits to hold the Farmers' Market on the street each week and to pay musicians.
