Friends of the Market and Pittsburgh Public Market patrons gathered for the grand reopening of the retailer, which relocated to 2401 Penn Avenue in the Strip District. The tasting followed a ribbon-cutting ceremony, and live music by Broke, Stranded and Ugly. As part of a weekend lineup of happenings, Animals Against the Odds Rescue and Rehab brought along its furry friends for adoption, the Broke Little Rich Girl fashion truck sold fabulous frocks and accessories, and guests experienced a gluten-free cookbook reading and tasting by Caroline Shannon-Karasik. Perusers made their own lip scrub with Mind Body Essentials and sampled a trio of pastas by Ohio City Pasta. It was love at first bite for those participating in the Boozy Baking Workshop with Wigle Whiskey and Eliza Jane Bowman of Eliza’s Oven. All the while, Vince Burns entertained with the sounds of live violin. The Live Cookspeak! podcast with Chef Tom Totin continued the celebration, as did kids’ activities, balloon art, a terrarium class with greenSinner, and much more. Says Assistant Market Manager Katie Wheeler, “The reopening was a great opportunity to bring people together and enjoy great food. We wanted everyone to walk away knowing the importance of supporting local, small businesses and the value of a space that fosters community.”
