Why try to do multiple fun activities at different times when you can do them all at once? There’s no need to worry about traveling far to have a good weekend when you’re in Kingsland. Strolling the beautiful historic streets of the downtown area for the monthly market might just squeeze all your Saturday dreams into one awesome day! From unique items from local crafters, to delicious coffee, to jaw dropping cars, Second Saturdays in Kingsland are packed with ways to enjoy a beautiful day right here in town.
Support The Community
Shopping local is a great way to support the community and enliven the area. Believe it or not, Kingsland is home to many talented makers, bakers, and growers! If you’re looking for handcrafted items that have that homemade feel, you’ve hit the jackpot. It’s no doubt these crafters pour their heart into what they do, the proof is in the pudding (or should I say muffin).
Every vendor brings their own stunning work to the table at the Kingsland Homegrown Market, making every month a wonderful mystery, solved only by visiting the market to see what’s there. From stunning wire wrapped crystal necklaces, to yummy treats for your furry friends, to stylish t-shirts, this market has a little something for everyone.
Cars & Coffee
Whether you know everything about cars or not, I’m sure most would agree seeing a sleek, shiny car in great condition is impressive. At Cars & Coffee, you can take a peek at stunning cars that we’ve probably all dreamt about owning; step into that old-car-gazing fantasy with a wide range of sweet rides that’ll catch your eye (and continue to live on in your dreams) in downtown Kingsland. This portion of Second Saturdays is organized and hosted by NineTwelve Auto Spa, an elite auto detailing business that is also housed in downtown Kingsland!
Don’t forget to stay hydrated! By hydrated I mean caffeinated, same thing, right? We were given two hands for a reason- one to hold the shopping bags, and the other to hold a drink to fuel the day. Pick up your favorite morning fuel from an awesome local Kingsland coffee shop, like Blue Bridge Coffeehouse, on your way to the market. Frozen, hot, or iced, truly nothing makes the day complete like a cup of coffee.
