More great photos from Mary Francis Andrews, of Arizona. Follow her on FaceBook! Her photos from Farm Aid (or any concert she attends) are so beautiful. She is a fan, and the love and respect she has for the artists come through in her art. And she always kindly shares her photos to post here. Thanks, MFA.

This past weekend, the annual Farm Aid concert was held in Raleigh, North Carolina. Above, you can watch Gary Clark Jr.’s rip-roaring full set of psychedelic blues rock as originally webcast.
From the opening of Robert Petway’s blues standard “Catfish Blues” there is an electric atmosphere as the Austin, TX gunslinger and his band take command of the stage and deliver a top notch performance. The crowd filters in during the set, and by the time Clark and his band leave the stage, the seats that were empty at the beginning are all occupied. The amazing day of music also featured sets from founders Neil Young, Willie Nelson, and John Mellencamp, as well as Dave Matthews & Tim Reynolds, Jack White, Delta Rae, Jamey Johnson, Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real, and Preservation Hall Jazz Band.

The Homegrown Youthmarket
Farm Aid Home Grown Village

[Every year at Farm Aid, friends share their photos and stories with me. This year, music lover and Farm Aid supporter Pat Keeney, of Texas, visited the Homegrown Youthmarket stand, and sent these great photos. Thank you, Pat!]
I visited the YOUTH MARKET at Farm Aid& was inspired by these youth & their commitment to farm fresh food reaching the dining tables of America. YOUTH MARKET started in NYC. The warehouse is in the Bronx where the local farmers bring their produce. The youth then set up the market to sell the produce for the farmers.
They have 15 sites across NYC where they set up their markets. While talking to Kori Petrovic, the YOUTH MARKET program coordinator, she said they are planning on leaving behind a YOUTH MARKET in Raleigh. The youth working at YOUTH MARKET/Farm Aid were the grand children of local farmers. They were selling beautiful grapes, tomatoes, peaches & other farm fresh food grown by North Carolina farmers.
Farm Aid is a wonderful teaching opportunity. It is a fun way to educate the public on where their food comes from & showing them just how easy it is to buy from local farmers. That helps the local farmers as well as putting better food on the table.
