Find us HERE, eat lunch THERE

The Pepper Market is taking place in a vacant storefront in Downtown Syracuse, located at 499 Warren St., on the corner of E. Onondaga St.  The space is near Hotel Syracuse, Columbus Circle, The Galleries, and more. Need more directions?  Try this Google Map link.  Oh and there’s on-street parking only.


Since there won’t be any food or drink vendors at the market this year, we’d like to offer up a few nearby options to fulfill your thirsty, hunger needs.   Among many, many, MANY options to grab a bite to eat in downtown Syracuse, here are a few suggestions that are delicious and in close proximity to the market:

Find locally roasted coffee, sweet treats, and lunch options try Cafe Kubal, 401 S. Salina St.

For fresh made sandwiches, soups, salads and more, grab a bite at Jolime 125 E. Jefferson St, just up the block.

Or enjoy Mexican food in a converted church at The Mission, 304 E. Onondaga St!

As they say in France, bon appetit!

We continued to be tickled silly when we get press coverage for our events, even more so when it’s in the physical paper!  Hip hip hooray!  Thank you Post-Standard team, and especially to Madina Toure for taking the time to write and organize the article, for your continued support.  You have no idea how much we appreciate it.


Pepper Market spices up weekend with

holiday gifts under $30

by Madina Toure | Contributing writer 

“When Vanessa Rose and Briana Kohlbrenner attended a market for artists in Brooklyn last year, they were struck by the market’s motto: $50 and under for all items.

Suddenly, it hit them. Why not create a smaller, more inexpensive version of their already successful Salt Market?

“We liked the idea of having a price point. It kept things low so people could kind of go and shop,” said Rose, 41, the market’s co-founder and co-director.

This Saturday, Central New Yorkers will have the chance to buy a variety of items, including stationery, jewelry, ceramics, local prints and handmade soap from 30 vendors for $30 and under at the second annual Pepper Market.”

And we deliver…

Lunch that is….to our vendors!  Since the Pepper Market will be packed tight with handmade vendors, we are left with zero room for the option of including food &/or drink vendors.  Since we don’t want our vendors to go hungry, we’ve offered to deliver lunch to them!  This year we are ordering food from Jolime Cafe, just up the street from this year’s market location at 125 E. Jefferson St.  They make sandwiches, soups, salads and more….all local, fresh, natural and delicious!  Hurray for yummy convenience.

Be sure to try Jolime Cafe next time you are in town.
