Norwood Farmers Market photos

 Last Tuesday's Farmers Market was busy!


If you weren't there, worry not. You'll have many more Tuesdays to attend before the market closes for the year on October 30th. 


The Market has great entertainment options scheduled. The 4H club was there last week, too...

As was Tom Cummings for his show "Inside Norwood" which was taped on the Common. 
Some members of the Farmers Market Advisory Board participated. 



Later Tom Cummings had a conversation with Norwood Chief of Police, William Brooks. 



Friends of Norwood Center was featured as well. 
Hope you'll catch the show on Norwood Public Access.  


Tom Cummings and his camera man, Ryan, were a great addition to the Market atmosphere.
Hope you'll come by next Tuesday anytime from 12-6pm. 

The Norwood Theatre: close to opening!

Have you seen the Norwood Theatre lately. 

Here's a photo of the front facade:

Can't wait to see the inside, too.  Soon!!
