The first "Night Market" set for August 24 | Arts & Culture
On Wednesday, August 24, the All Local Farmers' Market will open their doors from 4pm to 8pm for their first Night Market.
The Night Market will include a mix of new vendors and the market's staple Saturday vendors such as Heather's Artisan Bakery, Wil-Moore Farms, Caw Caw Creek Pastured Pork, Trail Ridge Farm & Dairy and City Roots. Dinner options plus beer and wine will be on the scene as well, courtesy of Bone In Artisan BBQ and Rosso Trattoria Italia.
The All-Local Farmers' Market is open every Saturday year-round from 8am to Noon at their 711 Whaley Street location, just next to 701 Whaley. Over the market's five year history, it has steadily grown in attendance and size with an average of 40 vendors per week. The Night Market was added in response to community feedback.
"We had a lot of folks in the Greater Columbia area speak to us in person or message us, saying they'd love to come to the market or come more often, but their schedules just wouldn't allow. Kids have Saturday morning soccer practice, some work on Saturdays and others simply just have a hard time getting out of bed on the weekends.", says the market's founder, Emile DeFelice. "The Night Market is meant for them and will give our Saturday market-goers an option."
The Night Market will be open every Wednesday year-round from 4pm to 8pm.
