The desire to help other businesses spurred Bonfire Grill to start its first pop-up farmers market, General Manager Brian Berger said.

“It’s something we had been thinking about doing a long time ago,” he said. “So we decided 'Why not just do a pop-up farmers market for vendors around the area so they can make a little extra money?'”


Berger said the first pop-up market, which was held onsite April 26 from noon-2 p.m., proved to be huge success based on the market's turnout.

“We will be adding [vendors and] there will be more this weekend,” he said. “Hopefully [the market will go] all around our building and down the street.”

Berger said the pop-up farmers market will be held every Sunday from noon- 2p.m. for the time being. However, once things start getting back to normal, Berger said he may transition the market to a monthly event to retain its novelty.



Some of the local vendors showcased in the market include Terrarium, Gelato Joy, Arts & Crepes and Steampunk Juice, among others.

There is no charge to join the market, Berger said, and those interested in joining can do so by contacting Bonfire Grill through its Facebook page.

Berger added the market is following safety guidelines and has a sanitizer station at the entrance.

“We have all the booths spaced out properly, and we have markers in between booths to let people know where they can stand,” he said. “We try to make people feel as safe as possible when they come in."
