Local honey, fresh goat milk and cheeses, pasture-raised eggs, and pecan nut butters, oils, and granola as well as fresh tomatoes and beets are just a few of the treats available at Alexander’s Highland Market’s first pop-up of the year on April 3, 2016, from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m. on the front porch. Pennington Biomedical Research Center nutritionists will also be onsite sharing healthy recipe samples and other nutritional information.
The market will also feature face painting for kids and outdoor grilling, making it truly a family friendly community event. “Supporting other small businesses and bringing people together to meet the folks who grow and make their food has been a fundamental part of our business plan since we opened two years ago,” says Lathan Alexander, president. “The pop-up market model builds community and benefits everyone.”
