Sundays are Fundays at the Sunday Market

Carousel at Shenley Plaza, University of Pitts...Image via Wikipedia I first learned about the Sundae Market from Carrie who is one of the great creative folks behind the Imadeit Craft Markets (see past post on IheartPGH here) – I stopped by the Sundae Market last fall and it was a perfect sunny Sunday afternoon. The Sundae Markets have returned this year and there are 2 more left this fall. The Sundae Market folks have a new website – SundaeMarket.com – They have been busy organizing markets in some other great cities like Buffalo – definitly sounds like something the GLUE – Great Lakes Urban Exchange folks would be happy to hear about.

Stop by Schenley Plaza on Sunday September 21 and September 28 from Noon to 5pm

  • I Made It crafters will be selling handmade goodness
  • DJ Nugget
  • Joy Ike
  • Spanning Time
  • Carnindyle
