Rick’s Roadside Market will celebrate the musical talent of local children from 10 a.m. until 3 p.m., Saturday, Sept. 22, as St. Louis and St. Charles chapters of Childbloom Guitar Program entertain market visitors while sharing techniques that encourage children to excel in music.

The Childbloom Concert event is a children’s event with vendors, food, art workshops, face painters and other activities that will be fun for the entire family.  A local child will be awarded a scholarship to attend the music program and become a part of the St. Charles Childbloom Guitar Program.  The scholarship will be awarded by Cottleville Mayor Don Yarber at 1 p.m., at the market located at 5382 Gutermuth Road in Cottleville.

Rick’s Roadside Market is a large renovated barn that rests on land that was home to the Hopewell Indian community dating back to 400 BC.  The owners envisioned a farmers market that would become a gathering place for business owners and residents resulting in a more viable local economy; increased access to fresh, nutritious food; fundraising opportunities for local charities and stronger social networks that help keep the community strong.

Hours of operation are Friday from 3p.m. until 7p.m., Saturday from 8 a.m. until 3 p.m., and Sunday from 10a.m. until 3 p.m.  Unique vendors are welcome to apply for participation in the market.  Contact Marcia Rodriguez at marciarodriguez1@yahoo.com, visit them online at www.ricksroadsidemarket.com or call 734-7420 to obtain a vendor packet and registration application.
