May 16—Shoppers will have another reason to visit The Alley in downtown Aiken this summer.
The Market in The Alley returns on Thursdays in June from 6-8 p.m.
The City of Aiken, Parks, Recreation and Tourism Department and the Aiken Downtown Development Association collaborate for this annual event.
"Along with farm fresh produce there will be a selection of artisan goods, eggs, baked goods, jewelry, and food from downtown restaurants available for purchase," according to a news release from the City of Aiken. "Downtown shops and restaurants welcome you to make an evening of it."
Residents can enjoy live music from Amp The Alley while grabbing a bite to eat at one of the local restaurants and check some items off of their shopping lists by perusing farm-fresh produce as well as artisan goods.
Amp the Alley is a free concert series held in The Alley in downtown Aiken every Thursday from 6:30-9:30 p.m.
In addition to the Market in The Alley Thursday evenings in June, the Aiken County Farmers Market is open Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 7:30-11:30 a.m. from April through September and 8:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. October through March at its permanent location at 115 Williamsburg St.
