Durty Bull Brewing Company Fall Pop Up Market @ Durty Bull Brewing Company
Sep 9 @ 12:00 pm – 6:00 pm

Raise your paws if you’re ready for another pop-up market at your favorite brewery! This September we’re opening the parking lot and brewery to local vendors as well as some adorable VIPs from The Animal Protection Society of Durham. These Very Important Pups are a part of the Durham Parks and Recreation’s Yappie Hour organization and their cause is a good one. Socialization is important in any dog’s daily life no matter the age, and one of the best ways to socialize your pup is to take it to a dog park. Yappie Hour and the Durham Parks and Recreation department have already helped build or improve three local dog parks, and have set their sights on a fourth location at the Rock Quarry.

Aside from the dogs, we’ve also got a great lineup of local vendors with some really nice products for sale! These vendors include –

Danielle Milner – Elle Woods Co.
Erika Martinez – Happy Unicorn Studio
Katie Mills – Bull Made
Megan Vossel – Cloth Union
Allison Kilburn – Elasticity of Oaks
Kristin Sullivan – Kristin’s Creations
Camilah Jennings – Patina Novum
Heather Levine – HHP Designs
Jacquelyn Leahman – Barn and Lace
Erin Stesch – Art & Design by Erin Stesch
Kobie Nettles
Jennifer Ring – Fabulous Merch- NC
Noelle Whitley – Bolla Fresca Soap
Alex Gates – LularoeAlexGates
Brandy Mutchler – Brandy’s Soy Candles
Kat Nigro – Tilthy Rich Compost
Mike Dulude – Sitting Bull Apparel
Sara Slade – Sara Slade Photography
Jim Hallenbeck – Jim Hallenbeck Fine Art
Yvonne Kovacic – The White Sparrow NC
The Salvage Sign – The Salvage Sign
Carl Tyson – Dapper Bow Ties

What does this mean for you? It means a really good day. All you have to do is show up, we’ll take care of setting up the food, vendors, beer, and dogs. The taproom will be open all day with fresh, cold beer pouring as fast as our bartenders can move their hands, and I imagine the food truck Boricua Soul Food Truck will be working at just as fast of a pace. Besides food and drinks, you’re welcome to browse the shops and see if anything catches your eye, as well as get some serious dog petting in. While there is no fee, we heavily encourage donations to Yappie Hour, because more places for dogs to be happy is never a bad thing.
