You know we like to have fun at Central Farm Markets so this year we invite you to join us on October 5, 2013 at our Caribbean Festival: A Day of Tropical Food & Fun, featuring live music, Caribbean food, arts and crafts for kids, games, giveaways and more.
The festivities will start at 9am when Doctor Dread will be starting the grill smokin’ for a feast of his famous jerk chicken wings and jerk salmon & wild rice burgers. Get the recipes here. After living in Jamaica for over 20 years, Doctor Dread perfected his jerk chicken recipe – it’s the best jerk chicken anyone’s tasted inside or out of Jamaica!
To liven things up, Doctor Dread will be handing out CDs and T-shirts throughout the day and will be giving away a pair of tickets to a lucky winner for the Stephen Marley concert on October 23rd. Make sure to stop by his stand to enter your name to win!
Reggae sensation Zedicus will take the stage at 10am with some laid back, groovy live reggae. They’re music is so good, you’ll feel like you’re in Jamaica grooving on the beach!
Caribbean Festival is guaranteed fun for the whole family, so don’t leave the kids at home for this one! Central Farm Markets’ Kids Club will be open from 10am-12pm where kids can make colorful Caribbean masks. Come early so your kids can participate in the limbo contest at 10:15! Prizes and fun for everyone.
In addition to Doctor Dread’s spicy food, Chef Lynn will be sampling non-alcoholic Island drinks at Cook’s Corner. Aside from being delicious, the drinks are also FREE! Come by Cook’s Corner from 11 – 1:30 for a taste of the Caribbean.
Have you ever done yoga on the beach? extendYoga is leading a FREE outdoor yoga session from 11:30 – 12:15 on the grassy area next to the market. Just imagine that you’re doing yoga on the beach in Jamaica and you’ll be stress free for the rest of the day!
The event is free but there is a cost for food. All of Pike Central Farm Markets’ usual vendors will be at the market selling their locally produced food products, fruits and vegetables. You might even find some Caribbean treats at some of their stands!
Mark your calendars for Saturday, October 5th (from 9am-2pm) for some Island fun in the October sun!
