5/12 Maryville Farmer's Market: This week's festivities include music by the infamous Brad Hitch. He describes the MFM as follows: "Ladies and gentlefellers; and also to those gals who are somewhat less than lady-like: I'm awful tickled to inform you that me and Dave will be playing tunes this Saturday morning 9-11 am at the Maryville Farmer's Market – downtown Murvul. So when Saturday a.m. rolls around, forgo sending little Billy off to the Little League park….in hopes he will grow to become a ball player…thus sentencing him to a life of Skoal-dipping and adjusting his man-parts in public. Nope, haul little Billy's hiney to the Farmer's Market and learn him right that shopping for groceries sucks a lot less when you're outdoors, buying the good stuff while ol Hitchy's a'pickin his banjer in the background."
