Woodlawn Street Market, now with five markets in its fifth year, is getting ready for its first-ever October Woodlawn Street Market! The Saturday, October 13 market on 55th Place South in Woodlawn will have a special focus on health and wellness.
In lieu of the market’s usual dance battle, Muriel Tarver of Creative Mindz Dance has planned a more interactive health and wellness-focused experience. From 10 a.m. to noon, try your hand(s and feet) at MixxedFit Hip Hop Exercise; then from noon to 2 p.m., learn some graceful new moves from a ballroom dance instructor.
“Health and wellness are important points of interest in the dance community,” Tarver said. “We want people to understand that they can be fun!”
Marketgoers can also talk with a personal trainer, get a mini massage from a massage therapist and learn more about planning out healthy meals from a chef and meal prep specialist. The market’s on-site graffiti artist is even planning some special wellness-themed art.
As always, Woodlawn Street Market shoppers can find art, jewelry, clothing, children’s books and toys, fresh produce, plus delicious food – all from startup businesses that they may not have seen before.
The market works to welcome first-time vendors, and you can expect to see at least ten new vendors each market!
Woodlawn Street Market community partners include Woodlawn Business Association, Woodlawn United, The Dream Center, Imperial Formal Wear and Woodlawn United Methodist Church.
