To Market, To Market


Millersville Cafe Market (5490 N. Emerson Ave.) kicks off its summer season on June 2. Every Thursday from 5 to 8 p.m. through August 25, tables and chairs will be set out for folks to enjoy their hot tamales from 3 in 1 Restaurant, crepes from 3 Days in Paris, Confectioneiress cupcakes, and food from a dozen other local vendors. But this unconventional take on a summer market—set up in a parking lot at the corner of Emerson Way and Fall Creek Parkway to attract folks on their drive home—is less a farmer’s market and more an outdoor food court. “We’d never seen a farmer’s market where you could sit down,” says market master Tom Eggers. So he started one.

    Cheers for Tom Eggers and everyone who worked to put this together- this is exactly the kind of thing we need to build our neighborhood!
