John Manke is an active former Bay View resident who is involved in numerous neighborhood organizations, including the Bay View Historical Society, the Humboldt Park Fourth of July Association and the Shore Shore Farmers Market. He believes Bay View has a fine tradition in its past that we do not want to lose in the future.
On Saturday, September 3rd, the South Shore Framers Market will be open from 8 AM to 12 Noon at South Shore Park, 2900 S. Shore Drive in Bay View. There will only be three more weeks to be able to buy corn. Water melons and cantalopes are available now. Tomatoes can be purchased as well as sweey onions. Kettle Corn is available to buy. Three bakeries are there to serve you. Over 40 vendors are on site to serve you. We have an educational program about 9:15 AM and a musical program at 10:15 AM. There are picnic tables there for the first ones who claim them for the day. You may bring your dog to the farmers market, but it must be on a leash and you must clean up after it. Come to a wonderful open air market with a view of Lake Michigan in the backround. You all are welcome to come. I will see you there. Y'all come and join us.
