I was contacted this past Tuesday to entertain at a farmer's market the very next day, in Tarrytown, New York! James from Champagne Tea, one of the vendors at the weekly Grove Street Farmer's Market in New Jersey was kind enough to refer me.
The market took place on the campus of Regeneron Pharmaceuticals - and what a campus it is! The company employees around 1,200 people, which most of them attended the market.
