Visionary violinist Dixon’s Violin to perform at New Era Farmers Market Tuesday

NEW ERA — Visionary violinist Dixon’s Violin will perform at the New Era Farmers Market Tuesday, Sept. 12, beginning at 5 p.m.

Celebrating the end of summer, the final New Era Farmers Market of 2023 runs from 4-7 p.m.

The world’s premier visionary violinist, Dixon’s life mission is to inspire people — and he has done so at over 1,000 concerts across North America, including five TED talks/performances; over 10 years at Burning Man and Electric Forest; plus radio, TV and film appearances. A former technology leader and symphony violinist, Dixon walked away from a distinguished career to follow his dream full-time, and invented a whole new music genre. Dixon now improvises on a five-string electric violin with a looping system he developed to create an all-live one-man symphony, guided by his remarkable personal story of life transformation.

New vendors joining the farmers market: Garden City Garlic; Weesies Brothers with delicious corn and beautiful perennials; and the Oceana County Medical Care Facility with cookbooks for sale. 

Agewell Services of Muskegon will issue Senior Market Fresh coupon books. The kids club will meet from 4-5 p.m. for story time with Barbara Sims from Storybook Village in Pentwater. Children can decorate mini pumpkins to take home. 

A drawing will take place at 5 p.m. for a family farm tour for up to four people at Country Dairy. 

MSU Extension Michigan Fresh cooking show will feature a Waldorf Salad recipe. Country Dairy will serve old fashioned/made from scratch sloppy joes with a choice of sides, cookies, chocolate milk, pop and water, and snacks; Deb’s Cafe will serve lasagna and garlic toast; and The Artisan will serve nachos, wraps, burritos and cucumber lime water. 

The market is located on the grounds of the New Era Christian Reformed Church at 1820 Ray Ave. Look for mascot Raye the Scarecrow at the corner of Oceana Drive and Ray Avenue with a sign directing you to the market.
