Guest Blog: FarGo’s Third Birthday

First of all, a massive congratulations to FarGo and it’s team on their 3rd Birthday! As someone who has been visiting FarGo for the last 3 years and watched the place grow and build with its vendors and the public, it was great to see this vibrant place celebrating its success!

I love a good market and Fargo never disappoints when it comes to these kind of events. This Saturday was no exception with the regulars being joined by small local crafters which got me very intrigued for the Halloween Market in October!

Residents PopBangColour and special guests,Two Tone Taxi joined in the festivities as the Boudica festival (which celebrates the talents of young women in the music industry) was in full swing with live music through into the evening.

A great open mic session followed on the Sunday, to keep us chilled and singing along in the afternoon. Vegan Grindhouse and Red Banger supplied the food, and Bubble Boba was my chosen place to drink (as it often is!).

FarGo’s resident businesses are it’s soul, so I wanted to give some shout-outs to a few of the vendors. Firstly, to the Rock n Roller Parlour for providing me with the best hair styling I’ve rocked in years with a more comfortable and different experience than anywhere else in Coventry!

 Next, to the Big Comfy Bookshop, for providing a respite from the outside world; a place you can relax with that book you bought with a cup of tea before you need to get back to reality. Finally, to Ronnie whose great collection of bric a brac keeps us coming back every time just to see what camera, trinket or great vintage finds are in store!

Choc n Roll, Astral Gypsy, Not Just Jams, Albie’s Boutique, The Green Unicorn… there are just so many shops that I can’t mention them all… But on behalf of all the people who love Fargo, a big thank you to the Fargo management team and all of you for making it a great place to hang out and explore!

Here’s to further good times as Coventry heads towards it’s City of Culture Bid!
