On Saturday, April 17, Levee Street Marketplace will be having a celebration in honor of their 8th anniversary.
The event will host an outdoor flea market and door prizes, along with Pick’in on the Porch featuring Gary and Melissa Osburn. Refreshments will be served and Redneck Foods brand will have a representative on site for taste-testing. The Warren County Tractor Club will be presenting an Antique Tractor Show and the Cleveland Corn Beef Food Truck will also be on hand to tickle your taste buds.
Might River Records recently moved upstairs to allow them to expand their offerings of CDs, vinyl records, posters, and music memorabilia. Mighty River Records owner Dr. Dan Edney will be on hand beginning at 1:30 p.m., answering the challenge of “Music of the River City” pod cast host Chris Goodin. They will take turns selecting their top twenty-five albums in a fantasy draft while they are recording an episode of the podcast.
You can join the draft as well. Throughout the summer, whichever team sells the most albums will be declared the champion. Purchases made during the draft will receive an extra 20% off. Purchases during the remainder of the celebration are eligible for a 10% discount.
Each day brings new and creative items to Levee Street. Many of the items are hand crafted by area artisans and local craftsmen. One can find one-of-a-kind antique items that have been restored, or other antiques which are waiting for that special touch.
Owner Mary Landers converted the family’s furniture business into a marketplace following the death of her father, Henry Heggins. The marketplace has become a frequent stop for area travelers and is often the first stop and image that our visitors from the river cruise ships get of Vicksburg.
Levee Street Marketplace was unable to hold a celebration last year due to COVID-19, although they were able to hold a gathering in October as part of “Festival on the River”. This year’s event is not one to be missed. If you haven’t been to Levee Street lately, you’re missing one of Vicksburg’s hidden treasures. It is an opportunity to enjoy some fun and have a great family experience.
All COVID regulations will be followed. Masks and hand sanitizer are required upon entry.
