Brendan Haggerty and the team from Whole Hog Food Truck are preparing and presenting a Whole Hog Roast at the Larkin Market on Thursday, Sept. 4th and by back by popular demand on September 11th from 4 – 7:30 pm.  Brendan has sourced a locally raised pig through Dispenza’s Meat Market.

Brendan and the team will be at Larkin Square early Thursday morning to start the slow roast process.  Feel welcome to stop by during the day during the roasting process. Brendan tells us the meat will start coming off the spit at 4 pm. He will be carving to order, and the team will be serving up pork tacos.  Brendan tells us” This is an exercise in simplicity and deliciousness. Everyone should be there!”

The Larkin Market will be open from 4-7:30 on Thursday and continues on Sept. 11th and 18th.  In addition to the Pig Roast on Sept. 4th and 11th , enjoy “Social Shopping” from 60 other vendors selling produce, fresh and prepared foods, arts and community plus accoustic music.

While most Buffalo summer concerts series have wound down, Larkinville is still going strong with our Wednesday concert series for the next three weeks into September.  This Wednesday, September 3rd from 5 – 8:30 pm  Live at Larkin, presented by First Niagara and sponsored by Independent Health,  welcomes from NYC a soul powerhouse with Buffalo connections in the band Mary C & the Stellars.  The opening band is another favorite,  the Buffalo-Rochester hybrid David Michael Miller & his Other Sinners, led by the Dive House Union frontman whose debut album recently climbed to #4 on the national roots music charts.

Both bands will be on stage for a collaborative encore at 8 pm.  Food and drinks in the offerings too, with Whole Hog, House of Munch and Amy’s Food Truck joined by Gypsy Gelato and Mattie’s food carts.
