The calendar will say Sunday, but it will feel a lot like Saturday at the 2nd Street Market this summer when the market tests out expanded hours.
Three out of four market vendors have committed to opening on Sundays during a 13-week pilot program that starts at the beginning of June, said Jimmy Harless, manager of the 2nd Street Market.
Most of the market’s major vendors will be open for business, and every type of seller will be represented on Sundays, including three outside farmer vendors, Harless said.
Pavilion vendors, who sell crafts, art, jewelry and other creations, also will have a strong representation, and musicians will be present, playing for tips, Harless said.
“We’re going to offer pretty much everything we offer on Saturday,” he said. “It’ll have more of a Saturday feel with the outside market, with music for entertainment.”
Some vendors who plan on being open on Sundays include Caffeine Carl, the Flowerman, KJB Farm, the Olive Tree, the Chef Case, Crepe Bohème, Spice Rack & Bulk Foods, Cheeky Meat Pies, Tim’s Gifts N More, New World Alpaca Textiles, Dayton Urban Green, Animal Snackers Bakery, Arepas & Co. Express and Azra’s Mediterranean Cuisine.
“We are so excited and so ready for this,” said Azra Kaurin, owner of Azra’s Mediterranean Cuisine.
Five Rivers MetroParks’ pilot program, if successful, could lead the market to not only bring back Sunday hours in 2018 but also possibly expand its hours of operation further, officials said.
Success will be measured by attendance, feedback and vendor participation.
For this year, pulling Friday attendance figures on a Sunday would be an achievement, said Amy Forsthoefel, Five Rivers MetroParks’ research and analysis manager.
That equates to about 1,000 to 1,200 people every Sunday.
It’s unclear if the market will be able to reach that benchmark, but officials expect Sundays to feel a lot more like Saturdays than either Thursdays or Fridays.
Saturdays draw about 5,000 visitors during the peak parts of summer.
For years, the buzz around the market was that vendors would love the opportunity to open on Sundays.
Now that they have that chance, vendors have lined up to participate in the pilot program, which runs June 4 to Aug. 27.

Investigators with the Lacey Police Department said a man walked into the restaurant and ordered a cup of coffee, but was upset over the 97-cent price.
After he received his coffee, the man poured it into his to-go mug and then demanded a refill from the manager.
Investigators said the manager asked the man to leave after he got verbally abusive about the price of the coffee.
The man then got upset and threw the cup of hot coffee into the manager’s face and fled.

SAN ANTONIO — A principal at Dr. Martha Mead Elementary School is getting praise after she was photographed helping serve breakfast to her students.
KSAT reported that Principal Annette Lopez stepped into action when she was told that the cafeteria would be short staffed Thursday. Many employees were out on sick leave.
“What happens when the cafeteria is short staffed? The principal puts on a hair net, gloves & apron to help serve breakfast,” Mead Elementary captioned a photo posted to the school’s Twitter page.

“When you serve that many students, there is no way that one line is just going to do it,” Lopez told KSAT. “I loved it and the kids had fun, (and) one of the kids said, ‘Hey, I know you,’ and I said, ‘Yes, I’m the principal.’”
According to Lopez more than 400 students are served meals at the school .
“(The students) kept saying, ‘But, you’re the principal.’ And I kept saying, ‘It doesn’t matter what your job title is, if someone needs help, then you do it,’” Lopez said.
By lunch time, the cafeteria was fully staffed, but the photo posted of Lopez serving students made a lasting impression.
