Uptown is chocked full of fun happenings this time of year. Everything from concerts to street fairs and festivals, you’ll find lots of ways to spend your free time!
East Isles Farmers Market
Where: 1620 The Mall, between James and Irving Avenues
When: Every Thursday 4-8 pm, 6/23 through 9/29
If you are looking for locally grown, you must go to the East Isles Farmers Market! This market, in the beautiful East Isles neighborhood, is THE place to get delectable fresh produce and beautiful flowers as well as homemade bread, soaps, coffee, cheeses, gluten-free goods, eggs, and much more. If you are in the “everything pumpkin and spice” frame of mind, you’ll satisfy that itch at the Market. And, there’s a food truck at the market for a convenient bite to eat on 9/22 and 9/29!
Uptown Dog Fair
