Summertime and the living’s easy — especially at the seventh annual Summer Market happening today and tomorrow in Avon Lake. More than 50 vendors set up furniture, jewelry, art, vintage items, fresh produce, home décor, and other goods for the thousands of people who visit the Market each year. “It’s dreamy,” says Erin Stack, event co-founder and dedicated shopper. Beyond the shopping, the lineup of live entertainment features Brent Kirby, this rag’s pick for Best Musician of 2012; Up Ensemble and Kelly Wright will take the stage tomorrow. “Although Friday night feels like date night and Saturday feels like a family event, the Summer Market is for everyone,” says Stack. “It has that oldtime feel.” Sweet Melissa, Fahrenheit, and Sweet! Mobile Cupcakery are just a few of the spots that are bringing the grub. Today’s hours are 5 to 9 p.m.; tomorrow’s hours are 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. It’s happening at Veterans Park. Admission is free.
