A nighttime farmer's market in Walkerville is set to launch, complete with alcohol and music, at the end of May.
The market will run from 5 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the last Friday of every month, from May through September.
"Experience a relaxed market atmosphere with music in ear and drink in hand," reads a flyer circulated in the neighbourhood.
The flyer promises local produce, arts, crafts and more.
Teanna Lindsay of Teanna Lindsay Events is the woman behind the idea. She's recently returned to Windsor from Toronto.
"I just love this neighbourhood. I think this area has so much potential and so much going for it. I thought, 'I’d love to create an event,'" she said. "It came to me that maybe there are other people that would like to enjoy an evening event out like myself.
"Let’s give somebody something different on a Friday night."
The market will be held in the parking lot of Willistead Restaurant at Wyandotte Street and Chilver Avenue. It will also have space in the parking lot at Vito's Pizzeria, on Wyandotte between Chilver and Windermere Road.
The Walkerville Night Market will feature ready to eat meals by both restaurants.
"It’s not a full-day event. It’s just an evening of pop-ins, stay for a while, stay for a drink and do a little shopping for the weekend.
Lindsay had to get a noise bylaw exemption from the City of Windsor.
That was approved and residents in Walkerville were notified by mail earlier this month.
"We’re approved and we’re ready to go," Lindsay said. "We’ve got lots of support from the city. It’s getting a great response."
Walkerville isn't the first neighbourhood to host an evening market. The Riverside Sportsmen's Club started hosting one between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m. on Thursdays last year.
This year, it runs from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., according to the club's website.
Lindsay said there is no competition among farmer's markets in the city, which also has one downtown and another in the west end.
"Everyone in this industry really just wants to promote local produce, local artists," she said. "Everyone’s really just working as a team."
