Breese Stevens Field will host The Bodega, a free outdoor market, on five Thursday nights this summer. The event will run from 4:00-8:00 PM and admission is free!
The Bodega will feature farmers, artisans, antique dealers, and craftsmen selling locally sourced goods and produce. Far from an average farmers market, The Bodega will also feature food carts, live music, and kid’s games to ensure a family-friendly event for all. A vinyl record swap is scheduled and attendees are encouraged to bring their own vinyl to participate. A wide variety of local beers, and wine will also be available for purchase. The kid’s area will feature a 60’ long inflatable zip line for the enjoyment of kids of all ages.

May 19 – F. Stokes
F. Stokes will headline the music stage at the first ever Bodega on May 19th. The Chicago, Illinois native will perform two sets, one as his traditional character of F. Stokes, with rap music styled after Kanye West and Patti Smith. The second set will feature Rappin’ Ricky, a character that will empower, educate, and excite kids (and adults) of all ages and is the star of a children’s book written by Stokes.
Stokes, whose real name is Rodney Lucas, appeared as a rap coach on MTV’s Made, which aired in 2013. He has released two studio albums, Death of a Handsome Bride in 2009 and Fearless Beauty in 2013. He is currently putting together an EP of remixed Arrested Development hits, including Mr. Wendal and Everyday People. He has played the Montreal Jazz Fest and Voodoo Fest and has worked with many artists, including Bastille and Jillionaire of Major Lazer.
