June 17th Activities

 
“Varieties is a four person music team. Tom, Tami, Timmy and Tony. We are a family that has always been interested and involved in music in some aspect. Tom & Tami have been writing and producing various styles of music for several years. When they had their two small children, naturally they became aware and interested as well. Growing up they watched various TV Programs that were music related. Such as: Wiggles, Barney, Imagination Movers, and a host more. Both children are also learning how to play the keyboards and guitar. As interest increasingly grew their parents thought it would be perfect to write songs centered around the young. With that idea evolved into something much bigger, the idea flourished and birthed into a product. Our desire is that we can present a fun and positive way of having fun.”
  • Copies of 6 creative delicious recipes for in-season produce are now available at the Welcome Booth

  • Ask about our 2017 Market Friends Program t-shirt!
  • The Morton Grove Historical Museum will be open from 9 am – 12 pm
