If you’re in a cold weather or Super Bowl slump, the Huntsville/Madison County Convention & Visitors Bureau (CVB) has some news that just might brighten your day. The popular Greene Street Market, known for selling locally made goods and produce every April through October on its namesake street in downtown Huntsville, is setting up shop at the Visitor Center on Friday, February 12th from 10:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.
The first time event is a partnership between the Huntsville/Madison County CVB and Greene Street Market organizers to celebrate the 3rd annual #iHeartHsv campaign. A complete vendor list can be found on page 3.
#iHeartHsv is a social media campaign organized by the Huntsville/Madison County CVB that encourages social media users to respond to unique daily prompts about the great offerings of the Rocket City and its surrounding areas. The Huntsville/Madison County hospitality industry donates hundreds of prizes ranging from attraction passes to dining gift certificates, hotels stays, local art and more. One winner per day is chosen throughout the 14-day campaign. More information on the annual campaign, including its history and importance, can be found here.
“Not only does Huntsville continue to surprise and delight visitors and residents alike with new and unique offerings, but so does the #iHeartHsv campaign,” said Huntsville/Madison County CVB President/CEO Judy Ryals. “We’re thrilled to host the #iHeartHsv Greene Street Pop Up Market at the Visitor Center. The Visitor Center is a wonderful resource to find information about events, attractions, hotels, restaurants and more throughout Madison County. We look forward to more events like this one that show off our diverse, hospitable and charming community at the Visitor Center.”
The Visitor Center is located at 500 Church Street NW, Suite One in Downtown Huntsville. Open seven days a week, the Visitor Center is staffed with Visitor Information Assistants ready to answer questions about things to do in Huntsville and Madison County.
