ST. JOSEPH, Mich. — Going to the downtown Farmers Market used to be limited to the treat of selecting your own ripe, succulent fruits and vegetables. That isn’t the case any longer in St. Joseph, Mich.  The first Farmers Market kicks off Saturday May 27 from 9 a.m. – 2p.m. and will include the sale of jams, honey, hearth-baked breads and fine pastries, perennials, cut flowers, organic vegetables and more.

The 2017 Farmers Market is sponsored by The Boulevard Inn & Bistro. Executive Chef Cheyenne Galbraith says, “We are excited to work with local growers to spotlight the amazing produce coming from our region’s spectacular farms.”

Farmers Markets have grown in popularity as the demand for fresh, locally sourced produce and goods has increased.  Amy Zapal, executive director of St. Joseph Today said, “Take the time to chat with vendors who will share recipes, planting recommendations and cooking tips.” The Farmers Market will be open Saturdays May 27 thru October 14, 9:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. and is located Lake Bluff Park between Broad and Pleasant Streets.

Zapal also notes that market goers should plan to visit with several friends since the number of people attending this weekly event has continued to grow over the last few years. “It's a Saturday tradition!”

An All-American Rock and Roll Reunion Comes to The Mendel Center Mainstage with

Jay & the Americans and Gary Lewis & the Playboys

 

BENTON HARBOR, MI – During the rock and roll British Invasion of the 1960s, two groups notably carried the American flag and dominated the charts with hit after hit. These incredible hit making machines are coming to southwest Michigan for a night of great music and great memories. Jay & the Americans and Gary Lewis & the Playboys will be at The Mendel Center Mainstage in Benton Harbor, Michigan, for one show only on Friday, September 22, 2017, at 8 pm.

 

With a staggering 18 charted hits and five Top 10 records, few bands ever reached the heights of JAY & THE AMERICANS. The group has been experiencing resurgence in their popularity after re-forming with three original members and returning to stages all over the country. "This Magic Moment," "Only in America," "Cara Mia," "Come a Little Bit Closer," "Some Enchanted Evening," "Let's Lock the Door," "Walkin' in the Rain," and more will be faithfully re-created, accompanied by a live rhythm section and brass section.  

 

GARY LEWIS & THE PLAYBOYS co-headline with equally impressive credentials of 8 gold singles, 4 gold albums, and a string of monster hits including “This Diamond Ring,” “She’s Just My Style,” “Count Me In,” “Everybody Loves a Clown,” and the list goes on. The band also made the transition to the silver screen, having appeared in several movies of the era. (It didn’t hurt that Gary’s father is comedy legend Jerry Lewis.)

 

Tickets for Jay & the Americans with Gary Lewis & the Playboys are on sale at www.TheMendelCenter.com, and through The Mendel Center Box Office at (269) 927-8700, option 1, and in person weekdays from 10 am to 6 pm. Discounts are available for seniors, students and children, active military members, and veterans.

 

Gather your friends for a rock and roll reunion. Groups of 10 or more receive special discounts when orders are placed through The Mendel Center box office or online. Contact the box office about reserving private pre- and post-show party areas and transform your show experience into an informal class reunion, birthday party, a gathering of good friends, or other celebration.
