There’s a lovely spot in downtown Raleigh where the Boylan Bridge overlooks both the scenic overgrown (but still used) railroad tracks and the cluster of buildings that make up our small city center. If you drive or amble on over on Saturdays between 10am and 1pm you’ll be treated to a sunny shopping experience that will brighten your day, while you hear the Piedmont-style pickin’ of Dwight Hawkins.
Rebus Works (Facebook page here) is both a gallery and a framing store which also hosts Saturday morning markets featuring food trucks, farmers, and other craftsmen (and women) selling local goods. Any given week the newsletter will let you know which artisans will be present, but they will always be sure to have antibiotic-free, pastured and grass-fed meats, local seafood, farm fresh eggs, gorgeous veggies (including LoMo Market every week), artisan and gluten-free baked goods, crafters and a food truck too! You can also pet some of their ducks and chickens.
You can even get coffee or tea from the coffee bar, which is locally-roasted. So why not hop on over to Rebus one Saturday and check it out?
