GREENSBORO, N.C. – The Greensboro City Market kicks off Thursday, April 17, with nearly 100 vendors and more activities for the public.
Nearly 3,000 people show up for the event every third Thursday of the month and this year the market extends through November.
Executive Director of Triad Local First Luck Davidson said that people can bring their children and pets to the free event in the rail yard on the corner of South Elm Street and Barnhardt Street.
"We think that this market is different than any market that you can go to in the United States because we have our local businesses here," Davidson said.
Davidson said that the City of Greensboro and Downtown Greensboro, Inc. have been very supportive, offering the stage and generator equipment for the night.
Thursday about 100 volunteers will begin setting up before kickoff at 5:30 p.m.
