GREENVILLE, N.C. (WNCT) — A new outdoor market named ‘Believe in Greenville’ is starting this week.

The annual Umbrella Market in Uptown Greenville which has been held during the spring and summer will not be happening this year. A local business owner had already decided to host an outdoor market on Dickinson Avenue at his shop, the Farmers and Makers Market.

 When hearing about the canceled Umbrella Market, he decided that Greenville still needed something on a weekly basis for people to shop and vendors to sell their wares. He then decided to host his ‘Believe in Greenville’ market weekly starting Thursday. 

“In addition to our inside market vendors, we’re also going to have about 12 outside markets for this first market. We have a couple of face painters, woodworkers, pottery makers and painters,” said Ryan Webb, the owner of Farmers and Makers Market.

The market will be open every Thursday until August from 5-8 p.m. It will be located inside and outside of the Farmers and Makers Market on Dickinson Avenue.
