Aljoya Thornton Place food market in full swing this afternoon

August 25th, 2011 · 3 Comments

The Aljoya Outdoor Market at Thornton Place is open for business – and getting a lot of it.

The prices are great: 50 cents for an ear of corn, 70 cents for a head of Romaine lettuce.

Aljoya is catering to both residents of the senior living facility there and commuters from next-door Northgate Transit Center. It runs from 4-6 p.m.

The market, at 450 N.E. 100th St., includes fresh produce and baked goods and is overseen by the chef at Aljoya’s Lilly’s restaurant.

He’s not offering food demonstrations this afternoon, but he is offering this 7-inch pizza for $4.

There’s plenty of other goods. The location is outside the Bistro patio at Fifth Avenue Northeast and Northeast 100th Street.
