Market on South’s mural is up, but the burgeoning collective on the corner of South Street and Graham Avenue we told you about a few weeks back needs your assistance to get up and running.

They’re looking to raise money to help them overcome some obstacles before city inspectors give them the final go-ahead. The market, housing Valhalla Bakery, Humble Bumble Kombucha, and Dixie Dharma, is slated to open mid-summer.



Basing our business on the shared market concept, and having multiple vendors under one roof, we've created a mini market. We will showcase local artists, and craftsmen, giving the little guy a place to rent a shelf to sell locally made items, without everyone having to build their own storefront.

We will be hosting a Saturday morning farmers market, offering cooking classes, lessons on brewing your own Kombucha, as well as basic cake decorating classes.

We currently have the space, have the equipment, but we have run into some snags with the city, and need your help to get over these final hurdles. Two of the main ones are: the ceiling needs to have additional fire rating or a sprinkler system installed, and the HVAC system needs to be upgraded.
