Butcher & Bee offers all things local at new night market

Butcher and Bee is hosting a night bazaar in its parking lot this weekend.

Most people would probably agree that it’s important to support local businesses, local artists and local charities.

While certainly doable, it’s not every day you get the opportunity to tackle all those goals at once. That’s where Butcher & Bee’s new B&B Bazaar comes in.

After a successful first run in December, the restaurant is hosting its second night market to showcase local businesses and raise money for Redux Contemporary Art Center, the nonprofit art organization on St. Philip Street. Dozens of local vendors, artisans and food trucks will gather in the spacious parking lot on Upper King Street while local musicians perform live. More than 40 artists from Redux also will be on site to display their works.

Short Grain will serve food inside Butcher & Bee and Jonathan Ory of Bad Wolf Coffee will be offering his desserts and pastries inside The Daily, where hot cocoa and wine will be available.

Butcher & Bee hopes to continue hosting the bazaar the second Saturday of every other month, with the next one scheduled for April 9.

When: 9 p.m.-1 a.m. Saturday

Where: 654 King St.

Price: $5 entry fee, with a portion of proceeds benefiting Redux.
