The popular Friday-evening Farmers Market on Artisan Alley will not take place on Friday, Nov. 26, the day after Thanksgiving.
Artisan Alley property owner Conrad Realty Co. will be performing electrical-upgrade work on one of its buildings that will require cutting off electricity to lights that normally illuminate the market.
“For safety reasons, we felt it best to cancel the market,” Conrad Realty Co. President Barb Shepherd said. “We hope this gives the farmers and artisans an opportunity to enjoy an extended Thanksgiving holiday with their families and friends.”
Most of the other shops on Artisan Alley and in the Georgia Avenue entertainment district — including Cafe DaVinci, Nest and Persimmon Hollow Brewing Co. — will be open normal business hours for the Christmas-shopping dates of Black Friday, Nov. 26, and Small Business Saturday, Nov. 27.
BakeChop restaurant at 110 Artisan Alley and Blake Elliot Salon & Gallery at 102 Artisan Alley will be closed for the Thanksgiving holiday Nov. 25-29, and Scullery at 103 Artisan Alley will be closed Thursday and Friday.
