Music at the Market (October 2022), brought to you by Off Square Music, is a parade of wonderful performers at the Woodstock Farmers Market. What a great way to shop for local seasonal produce and locally crafted items, enjoying the music while you greet friends.

Every week we feature musical performances from local artists. The music styles range from country to pop to jazz. Many are solo performances, but we also have several full bands. We’ve had performers from as far away as Germany play for us at the Square.

For all upcoming Music at the Market dates, see our Off Square Music season calendar on this site.
