Pearl announced today, after shared interested among vendors, tenants, shoppers, and the local community, that it will now host a Sunday Farmers Market in addition to the popular Saturday Farmers Market.
The grand opening of the Sunday Farmers Market will take place on March 22 in the newly renovated Pearl Plaza in front of the historic Pearl Brewhouse and soon-to-open Southerleigh Fine Food and Brewery.

“Nearing our sixth year of operation, it was perfect timing for the Pearl Farmers Market to expand to Sunday. There was support among vendors, tenants, and the local community to make it happen,” said Elizabeth Fauerso, chief marketing officer at Pearl.
“The additional day offers opportunity to expand vendor business and for shoppers to access local products found at Saturday’s market. Sundays have already become a popular day at Pearl and those who come now can add market shopping to their list of things to do.”
