With so many options at the Downtown Market, it’s hard to decide what vendors to try.
Downtown Market organizers are making that decision a little easier this weekend with Finger Food Friday.
From 9 a.m. to 7 p.m., enjoy bite-sized snacks and mini morsels from a handful of market vendors. Guests can stroll the Market Hall to find featured items and special deals from market merchants, created just for this silverware-less theme.
Participating merchants and special menu items include:
Carver’s: Sliders, a smaller version of the classic burger – Carver’s house grind, lettuce, tomato, caramelized onion, pickle and Thousand Island dressing
