Dine out in historic cobblestoned City Market under twinkling lights while listening to live music. Woody's and Vic's Italian Cafe & Pizzeria will offer extended outdoor dining service. Additional tables and chairs will be set up in the gravel area beside Mofu Shoppe for you to enjoy take-out from a nearby restaurant and enjoy the music and ambience of City Market.

Details and Reminders: 

  • Call ahead to the restaurant of your choice to check availability of tables and make a reservation if able. 
  • There will be tables designated for restaurant dining as well as open tables for you to enjoy your take-out meals from nearby restaurants. 
  • Wear your mask, stay 6 ft apart, wash or sanitize your hands frequently. There will be hand sanitizing stations throughout.
