Hundreds Brave Cloudbursts To Sample Locavore Delights
Despite the intermittent downpours, hundreds of enthusiastic supporters of local agriculture, food and arts crowded the lawn of Wadsworth Mansion Sunday morning for the annual Open Air Market and Festival.
Rain has frequently been part of the festival ritual, so knowledgeable attendees clutched umbrellas, or wore parkas as they sampled bread, cheese, jams and dozens of varieties of local vegetables.
While the musical entertainment was consigned to a safe, indoor spot, the vendors braved the elements to offer their goods to attendees.
The festival runs until 4PM at Middletown's Wadsworth Mansion.
