Vantage Point Farmer’s Market and the Cash Mob

Last weeks market

Last weeks market – First of the year

It has begun….another great year of the Vantage Point Farmer’s Market.

At the first market there were new faces and old friends…many vendors are returning this year to offer their wares and what a wide selection available this year.

In the past there were 2 markets offered…the Farmer’s Market on Saturdays and the Arts and Crafts Fair on Sundays. This year the two are combined to offer a one day a week event that provides shoppers the convenience of a one day shopping trip with the variety of both markets.

Saturday, May 18, the Port Huron Cash Mob group has chosen the market as the site for this week’s Mob event. Not sure what a cash mob is? It is a way for local residents and visitors alike to offer support to local area businesses. What better way to support our area than stopping down to Vantage Point Farmer’s Market and purchasing you spring planting necessities, some new garden or lawn art, a delicious bacon topped cupcake (really! they are wonderful!), or maybe a new picture to hang on your wall at home.

Vantage Point Farmer’s Market, located next to the mouth of the Black River, is a wonderful place to spend any Saturday, but Cash Mob Saturday, May 18, may prove to be the most fun you will have shopping this month!first day at R n R market 006 first day at R n R market 009

Toy Tech is Here!

Wow! I had one of those!

 

Toy Tech, the new exhibit at the Port Huron Museum, is open and it is amazing!  From the slinky to silly putty, and model trains to pedal cars there are hands-on exhibits and view-only displays that will excite and warm the hearts of the youngest visitor to the youngest-at-heart.

The train, the dolls, and the history.

 

Would you like to launch a straw rocket and see how far it goes?  How about test driving your very own helicopter in the toy tech wind tunnel?  You can build a Tinker car, a Lincoln log cabin or relax and watch the model train on its journey around its miniature land.  Be sure to tip your hat back to the ‘man’ watching the train go by, he’s waiting for his dog to finish his business.  Look closely, you will see what I mean.

Lots of fun stuff to do!

 

Toy Tech is an adventure into the world of toys, child’s play, and memories.  So, grab your kids, your grandkids, or even the neighborhood kids and come down and experience the history, mystery, and all-out fun of Port Huron Museum’s newest exhibit, built just for you.
