You've still got time to enjoy the Brickworks Art Market, right next door to Coho Restaurant. Local artisans and crafters will have their works on display every Thursday night, 5 - 8 pm through September 1st. We enjoyed the varied selection of art, and the jazz sax player.
This is the "trial run" for the full season, which will be held from June to September, 2012. The new art market will complement existing ongoing evening events: Island Rec's Music on the Lawn on Wednesdays, the Brickworks Art Market on Thursdays, Music at the Port on Fridays; for morning people there's the Farmers Market on Saturdays, and Music at the Port on Sunday afternoons.
The goal of restoring the historic former concrete block factory is to provide a venue for local artists, musicians and events, as well as a permanent farmers market locale. We are happy to see our neighbor building come to life, and think a stroll through the art market before dinner at Coho is a lovely way to spend a summer evening.
