Expanded hours at Atherton Market

As a longtime lover of the food halls and outdoor street markets of Europe, I was capital "T" Thrilled when Atherton Market made its debut this summer. Apparently, a few of you must have agreed with that sentiment because the summer market hours were such a success that they’ve added a third day to the market’s hours.  Atherton Market will now be open year-round on Tuesdays from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., on Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Don’t feel confident enough to navigate the stalls of grass-fed beef, heirloom greens, and fresh seafood and veggies by yourself? Then don’t miss the Chef Series events taking place every Tuesday in October when area chefs will guide you around the market and show you how to shop for the best ingredients to make great autumnal meals.

We also love Atherton’s idea for a Great Costume Swap on October 9, when families can come to the market to pick up their Halloween pumpkin and trade costumes with other kids. It’s green! It’s money-saving! It’s brilliant.

Atherton Market is located at 2104 South Blvd.
