ECLECTIC, AL - The full bloom of summer is upon Eclectic Trade Days Second Saturday this July 10th with an expanded farmer's market, live music and family fun.
A new food vendor BBQ Masters Catering Team, world class premier championship BBQ from Georgia under legendary E.L. Smith, Pit Master and certified Master Chef, will be in attendance offering what some would consider as the best barbecue in the world.
Eclectic Trade Days regularly offers an indoor/outdoor market plus entertainment at The Warehouse in the heart of downtown Eclectic. The market will be open from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m. providing an opportunity for local area vendors to sell antiques, artwork, clothing, architectural pieces, baked goods, locally made products, live animals, farm fresh produce plus a delicious array of food selections.
Eclectic Trade Days' house band, the Knox Family, performs their traditional Gospel and Country music, along with their friends and musical guests. The band leader, Harvey Knox encourages aspiring performers do a song or two with the band.
According to Robin Norris, manager of Eclectic Trade Days, "Eclectic Trade Days is celebrating its first year anniversary this month. We will be adding an antique show at The Warehouse on the last weekend of October from the 28th-31st. We will bring in quality vendors for a premium event so mark your calendars now!"
According to owner/founder Aubrey Hornsby, "We will continue to contribute to city events such as the Fireman's Bash in September and the October 9th Alabama Cotton Festival. It's great to be involved."
"The Warehouse" is a newly refurbished, massive "red brick and timber" historic building of Eclectic's Roaring Twenties era that was used until recent decades as a cotton warehouse and was owned by General Aubrey T. Hornsby.
