Last Market on Hillsborough Street for Summer 2015


It is hard to believe the summer is coming to a close and today is the first day of classes.

We have enjoyed our new partnership with Live It Up! Hillsborough Street and thank them for hosting the market this summer. We would especially like to thank Kyleigh Zelenak, a Parks, Recreation and Tourisum major in the College of Natural Resources, for her efforts in blazing a new trail as summer market manager. The ground work she laid will ensure many summers of a healthy, sustainable, market on the street.

In addition, thanks goes to all the summer market vendors who took a chance on a new location, a new model and provided valuable feedback during many changes. We are happy to say many of these new vendors will be joining us on the Brickyard next week and the weeks that follow.

Before we get back to the Brickyard we have one last market on the street today. Come out and thank the vendors for their time this summer and register to win a gift basket with items from each merchant.

Kelly Dansby will be back again to lend her beautiful voice to the market atmosphere.

Confirmed Vendors:

Bordeaux Lane Studio

Jay’s Italian Ice

Hatcher’s Harvest

Annelore’s German Bakery

See you there this morning 11:30 a.m. – 1:30 p.m.
