Last Thursday we were closed for Thanksgiving, but we're back this week! Did you know that there are items you can only get at our Thursday market? From the Core's curly green kale to Mr. Henry Mauthe's creole cream cheese, the market is bursting with special Thursday only items! After you stock up at the market, swing by Cork and Bottle for their Thursday wine tasting, then treat yourself to a delicious dinner at our newest neighbor at the American Can Co., Serendipity.
