It’s SUMMER! Finally.

Summer Reading Kick-off! Summer Solstice! Summer Foods! Summer Fun!

Our New Rochelle Public Library celebrates their always popular and important Summer Reading Program with a kick off at the Library and the Grand Market this Saturday. Make sure you bring your children to the Library lobby to register for the 2016 Summer Reading Program, “Reading Road Trip” Summer Reading Game, check-out stacks of books, and start earning points for prizes.

Then enjoy family focused events, entertainment and crafts on the Green at the Grand Market while you shop for healthy and delicious produce and artisanal foods for your family.

And stick around to usher in summer with Westchester Yoga Arts annual “Solstice on the Green”.  Hundreds of participants will gather for this solstice celebration and to practice for a good cause. All ticket proceeds go to benefit the creation of a yoga program at the Boys & Girls Club of New Rochelle.

REMINDER: This is the last week to support the Pediatric Brain Tumor Foundation by purchasing Pots’ Canna Lilies for your garden. They receive 100% of the proceeds. Thanks

This is what your Grand Market is all about! Food. Family. Fun. Friends.

And talking about Friends, make sure you let them know about your Grand Market!

It was all good news for Brittany Guzinski, who spent the morning there with her husband Ben and their one-year-old twin girls Hattie and Nora. “The kids can run around here and there’s a great community here,” she said, while Ben Guzinski supervised the girls playing with chess pieces as tall as they were. “And the pound cake? Dear Lord! That’ll keep me coming back!”
