In addition to Saturday’s community-wide Maple Leaf Garage Sale, Blue Saucer is bringing a new tradition to Maple Leaf with a “Pop-Up Open Market” from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Aug. 19.

So far owner Billie Bryan has secured 20 vendors who will be selling “crafts, collectibles, junque and more,” including:

  • Art
  • Jewelry
  • Repurposed items
  • Clothing
  • Posters
  • Handbags
  • Hats
  • Papercrafts
  • Candles
  • Soaps
  • Knits
  • Handspun yarns

“We’re so excited about the fantastic response!” Bryan tells us.

There also will be live music from Mark Juan playing Spanish guitar, and from Highball Whistle, a three-piece girls’ string band.

Bryan adds that although she’s full on many vendors, she’s still on the lookout for more “pantry” items such as jams, jellies and pickles. For more information, stop by the cafe at 9127 Roosevelt Way N.E. or email Bryan at bluesaucer@gmail.com.

As for the rest of you, we’ll see you at the Pop-Up Market!

Aljoya Thornton Place food market in full swing this afternoon

August 25th, 2011 by Mike

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.
