Dupre at the Market is offering a variety of fun Sunday.
They’re calling it “Dupre at the Market Food Trucks, Music and More,” and it’s being held at DuPre at the Market, located at the State Farmers Market at 3483 Charleston Highway in West Columbia.
It’s the perfect get-outside-on-a-January-day event with several activities to appeal to everyone in your group.
There will be food – Bluegrass ’n Fries, 2 Fat 2 Fly, It’s a Matter of Taste, The Donut Guy and Gin’s Juice food trucks will be there, and Dupre at the Market will be open as well, serving Southern fare such as fried fish, fried chicken livers, collards, cornbread and barbecue.
There will be music – John McCullough (gospel), Johnny Fenlayson and Darlene Champagne (bluegrass) and Red Fraley and Nashville’s Stevie Ray Anderson (country rock) will perform.
There also will be vendors selling their wares, with a couple offering lessons on how to build terrain globes and how to make different juices.
“What do you do when all of a sudden you have a pretty day in January? You go to Dupre at the Market and see what he’s doing,” said Dupre Percival, founder of his namesake company. “And what we’re doing today is surrounding ourselves with vendors, food trucks, music and more.”
The food trucks and vendors will set up around Dupre at the Market, creating a marketplace feel for the event.
The event starts at noon and ends at 5 p.m.
Proceeds from the event will benefit Harvest Hope Food Bank.
