The Uptown Farmers Market celebrated its first birthday on Thursday, August 14. Eighth District Councilwoman Rae Gabelich was on hand to assist in drawing tickets for the opportunity drawing, in which fresh produce and a set of four lawn chairs were given out.
Also helping out with the drawing was Milia Islam-Majeed, the new executive director of the South Coast Interfaith Council and saxophonist Mickey Bridges, who entertained the crowd with his playing while free birthday cake was handed out to market-goers.
The Uptown Farmers Market is located in Bixby Knolls on the corner 46th Street and Atlantic Avenue and takes place every Thursday from 3 p.m. to 6:30 p.m.
