This Week at the Market: Saturday, October 25 - LAST Market of the Season!

No tricks - it's our last market of the season so come on out this Saturday in your Halloween costume and get some treats! We've got TONS of fun this Saturday at the market - kids storytime, free yoga, a photobooth, pumpkin donuts, plus early voting inside the Civic Center and some live music. We'll see you at our most EPIC market of the season!

Throwback Thursday - early voting on our last market of the season in 2012. Make sure to come out on Saturday and vote (early!) in your local elections!

Joining Us:

Wear your Halloween costume to the market and take a spin in a photobooth provided by Nikoo's Photos. She'll be printing photos on the spot too!

Our friendly neighborhood thrift store Pennyworth Thrift Shop returns with lots of their inventory - just in case you forgot about a Halloween costume. Old man from Up, anyone?

New vendor, Janery, joins us this Saturday with handmade throw pillows and trendy pet beds. It's cold out and even your furry roommates need new textiles to snuggle up on.

Aburi Botanicals joins us again with her beautiful bath and body products. Shaving soaps and bath salts means an at home spa day for EVERYONE!
