The Market at Pepper Place celebrates summer with the addition of a Tuesday Night Street Market. The evening market begins the third Tuesday in June. Hours are 4:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m. Farmers, food trucks and dancing will be on 29th Street South between 2nd Avenue and 3rd Avenue South.
“This monthly market will give people who work in the city center a chance to pick up fresh produce on their way home from work. They can also visit Lakeview, meet their friends and eat a wonderful meal from one of our local food trucks or the restaurants at Pepper Place. There will be live music and dancing. It’s smaller than the Saturday market and a great way to celebrate summer in the city,” said Cathy Sloss Jones, founder of the Pepper Place Saturday Market.
Street dancing on June 18 is supported by the local contra dance group Red Mountain, White Trash. Joyce Cauthen will call the steps. Dance groups are encouraged to attend and those who just want to learn are invited, too!
The Red Cat Coffee House will stay open late to serve beer and wine as well as traditional coffee beverages. Cantina will serve margaritas and other refreshments on their patio. And Bettola and Vittoria will be serving dinner inside and outside on the patio.
Farmers markets are a vital link between local farms and their supporting communities, playing an important role in local food systems and community building. The addition of a Tuesday Night Street Market will help support local growers and artisans in the Central Alabama region.
For the last fourteen years Pepper Place has hosted the Saturday Market. which has grown from 7 tents to as many as 100 tents each week. Local farmers, artisans, chefs, and musicians gather every Saturday morning from 7:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon between April and December – rain or shine!
