Do your last-minute Thanksgiving shopping at 2nd Street Market’s ‘Stock-Up Wednesday’

Though the 2nd Street Market in downtown Dayton isn’t normally open on Wednesdays, its vendors are happy to ensure that you have a vast selection of the best holiday treats on the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

The market, operated by Five River MetroParks at 600 E. Second St., is still a bit of a hidden gem. Its attendance on Thursdays, Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays has grown steadily in recent years. But, given the vast array of artisan food purveyors and craft specialists under one roof, the market still feels a bit under-appreciated this time of year.
