Old-fashioned get-together every Thursday

Wicked Local Cohasset-June 18, 2017

Maybe we should call it the “Calm-mon”?: In an age when many of us have come to accept that, like it or not, we find ourselves naturally drawn to connect to people, places and things via an electronic device or an on-line site, we frequently find it overwhelming to try and keep up with all of the information coming and going. Especially when we realize we’ve not actually “seen” anyone!

Thankfully, there’s a place where devices can be safely stored and good ol’ traditional face-to-face connections are ready and waiting for you. Visiting the Farmers Market on Thursdays can be, for many, a way to connect to the “Slower Life” we all crave and enjoy; the music, the vendors proudly displaying their items, friends you may know, new ones that you’ll make.

At times, it’s just walking by the stands, laden with color and goodness that makes us realize how good it feels to exhale, smile and slow the hustle and bustle for a moment. Whether you come just to look or to buy, alone or with someone else, we hope you will drop by the Common on Thursdays; a relaxing community experience that reminds us of why we enjoy congregating together in the first place.

Community: The CFM welcomed Ted Carroll this week to open the market. Ted is the Director of the Cohasset Recreation Dept. and oversees a sea of activity for the town and it’s families and is always looking to do more and bring more to his home town. He was pleased to announce that the Cohasset Summer Concert Series begins June 29th for eight weeks every Thursday at 6pm on the Common. Cohasset’s own A with Cohasset’s own Wheelhouse Rodeo will start the season on June 29th. All performances are free, open to the public and handicap accessible. Bring a lawn chair or a blanket, grab a snack at the Farmer’s Market and enjoy! Great LIVE music!! (RAIN site – Willcutt Commons 91 Sohier Street.) These concerts are funded in part through the generosity of South Shore Playhouse Associates, Inc, and supported in part by a grant from the Cohasset Cultural Council, a local agency which is supported by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
