Make plans now for a short trip to Camden, Ark., Friday, October 4, 6PM – 9PM in downtown Camden as First Friday Market celebrates “Fall Air and Vintage Flair”. This month’s market is filled with all things vintage including furniture, jewelry, wooden signs and more.
Everyone wants to get those selfies at the special Arkansas cut out. As usual there will be a vast array of vendors set up along Washington St and Adams Ave selling everything imaginable. You will not go hungry when it comes to food either. Your taste buds can enjoy Oriental egg rolls, dumplings, fried shrimp and more. If your preference is more US-style we have that covered too, with a New York style hot dog cart, cotton candy, candied apples, popcorn balls and other sweet treats that make you think of fall.
Stop by A Frame of Mind to visit with this month’s featured author, Niki Benton Smith. She will be on hand with her trilogy of books. The series takes place in the fictional town of Crafton where Smith’s main character, Samantha who is a registered nurse, has premonitions and uses them to solve mysteries. You will also be able to visit with this month’s featured artist, Stephanie Crews who will have some of her art displayed and for sale.
Back by popular demand to First Friday is Harper and Lee. The duo is a husband and wife alt-Americana, singer/songwriting duo who performs with a kick-drum, foot tambourine, acoustic and electric guitars to reveal their unique style of original music. Although married, Harper and Lee grew up thirteen years apart which allows for the unique collaboration of older style folk with a modern rock twist. This allows the duo’s captivating sound to transport everyone who hears it into nostalgia. You won’t find a perspective on traditional sounds quite like these two. Harper and Lee’s live shows connect the audience in a way that makes you feel right at home no matter the size of the stage.
You can find the special Evening Farmer’s Market on the Farmer’s Bank Parking Lot for all your fresh sweet potatoes, pumpkins local honey, jellies, jams, free range eggs, grass fed meats and mums! Catch the sounds of this month’s special live music at the corner of Washington and Adams.
