Every weekend, from Oct. 2 to May 21, on the corner of 40th street and Camelback locals are attracted by the aroma of fresh food to Vincent’s Saturday Market.
The market was started by Vincent Guerithault and his family as an addition to their already successful bistro.
The market offers food as well as a social atmosphere to start one’s Saturday.
Offering fresh food items from the bistro’s menu as well as additional choices, the market has something for everyone.
Connor Genta ’11, a Calc club member who works at the market, described the experience as a happy and relaxing event.
“People really enjoy the market and are happy to see their local vendors,” Genta said.
Local vendors include custom bread makers, chocolatiers and jewelry booths.
The shopping venue available at the market ensures that a patron’s visit will be a remarkable one.
According to Genta the market offers food items from paninis and pizza to crepes and custom bread.
In addition to the great food and community, Vincent’s Market helps contribute to Brophy’s Calc Club.
“The Guerithault family gives us a premiere spot to sell our cookie mix,” Genta said. “We raised about $8,000 last semester alone.”
The money raised by the Calc Club at Vincent’s Market goes to help impoverished families in need around the valley by providing food, money and cheer for their Christmas holiday.
