Tuesday Market gets underway in Moscow with poetry readings

The Tuesday Market’s fourth season begins next week, ushered in with readings by Moscow Poet Laureate Stacy Boe Miller.

The weekly farmers market, from 4-7 p.m. through Oct. 17 at the Latah County Fair & Event Center, 1021 Harold St., Moscow, combines local produce, meats and crafts with live music, cooking demonstrations, a beer garden — and now poetry.

The Poetry Pole, a cedar pole at the venue’s Harold Street entrance, will be inaugurated at 6 p.m. Tuesday, June 6, with Boe Miller’s readings. Community members are invited to pin their poetry to the pole to share throughout the market season, and the posted poems will be periodically collected and archived.

The first market also includes: a cornhole tournament, with registration at bit.ly/TuesdayMarketCornhole; a youth activity using Kids Eating Right Nutrition and Exercising for Life, or KERNAL, materials; and live music by Jim Boland. The season’s music lineup and vendor lists can be found on the Tuesday Market Facebook page at facebook.com/tuesdaycommunitymarket.
