Mount Pleasant Farmers Market (17th and Lamont)
A small but mighty market in a historic neighborhood, the Mount Pleasant Farmers Market is the perfect place to spend your Saturday morning. Every Saturday from 9:00am-1:00pm, catch up with your community while browsing wares from local vendors, including ripe produce, freshly-baked goods, and more.

If you’re looking to switch up your hairstyle for the fall season, look no further. For over 25 years now, Golden Scissors has treated the Mount Pleasant community to a cutting-edge salon experience.
