So you might have thought with the leaves reigning down and even a hint of snow in the air that North Limestone Night Markets are done for the year. And you, Mr. and Ms. Lexington, would be wrong.

There is another edition of the street event slated for 7 to 10 p.m. Nov. 22 on Bryan Avenue between North Limestone and East Loudon Avenue, this one with a Thanksgiving theme geared toward food and giving back.

The Night Market is a pop-up street festival that started in August and has been held monthly since, featuring music, artists and vendors in a section of the road that is blocked off for the event. The aim is to change perceptions of the area and highlight its creativity.

A release from the North Limestone Community Development Corporation, which presents the Night Markets, says the November edition will feature eats from Grind Burgers, Fork in the Road Mobile Galley, Minton’s and possibly others as well as beer from West Sixth Brewing.

It will also encourage giving to groups that benefit the North Limestone area, including light bulbs for Lexington Art League’s Luminosity exhibit in February, donating $5 to Seedleaf to buy a plant for the expansion of the North Pole Garden, buying holiday gifts at the Lexington Rescue Mission Thrift Store on Bryan Avenue, donating canned goods to the North Limestone Lady Can Drive and donating used orchestral string instruments to the Central Kentucky Youth Orchestra’s North Limestone MusicWorks program.

And that will not be it for 2013. The Dec. 13 editon is being billed as the “Holiday Market.”
