Tuesdays at the Jenny kicks off September 8 in Greer
Besides being a cool name, The Spinning Jenny in Greer is an equally cool gathering spot.
Beginning Sept. 8 and continuing until Oct. 27, the venue will present Tuesdays at the Jenny, a curated, open-air market featuring artisans, local produce, fresh seafood, bakers, music and more.
Each Tuesday at the Jenny will be a themed event from 4:30 p.m. until 8:30 p.m., with live music, more than 25 artisans and craft vendors, and a food truck complementing the theme. Each week also will include a best decorated mask content, with prizes awarded for first, second and third place.
A Greer landmark for almost 70 years, The Spinning Jenny has a varied past. Originally a grocery store, the building has been a feed and seed, roller skating rink, wrestling ring, heavy metal music room and an Opry house.
Now after an uplift, 107 Cannon Street is a venue for live music, theatre, weddings, community events, meetings and festivals. Here is the lineup for Tuesdays at the Jenny, beginning September 8:
