On a surprisingly beautiful afternoon in late January, Mill Village Market celebrated its official Grand Opening with over 300 neighbors, supporters, and friends. The fellowship was filled with live musical performance by our neighbor Clay Westbrooke and Sloan Click. The party would not have been complete without some great food from our friend James Hester at Wholly Smoke BBQ Food Truck and some authentic quesadillas hand-made by one of our neighbors in Woodside. The festivities even spilled into the streets where neighbors and visitors shared laughs and stories.
The party concluded with a Green Ribbon Cutting with special guests, Greenville City Council Member and Urban League Executive Director, Jil Littlejon, our business association president and Upstate Business Journal Publisher, Ryan Johnston, and our neighborhood association president and Bethel Bible Pastor, Vardrey Flemming. We even had some of our closest supporters join us, including community advocate Peggy Baxter, ScanSource Charitable Board Member, Joel Douglass, Long Branch Baptist Church's First Lady Satreva Dogan and even former Secretary of Education and Governor Dick Riley.
The celebration marks the beginning of a fresh start in the westside of Greenville with local and fresh food abounding and budding job-training and employment opportunities for teens to be at the forefront of building hope and service in our neighborhoods.
If you missed it, don't fret, we are already dreaming of another block party in the warmer months! Come stop by and see what everyone is talking about at Mill Village Market located at 8 Lois Ave, Greenville, SC 29611 Monday & Friday: 9am-5pm, Tuesday-Thursday: 9am-7pm, and Saturday 10am-3pm.
