The 16th annual Spring Market opened to a great reception on Friday, March 21st. Hosted by the Junior League of Monroe and sponsored by Community Trust Bank, this annual shopping event is eagerly anticipated by the community each year. The Market opened on Friday morning with the classic event, Shop ‘Til You Drop!, sponsored by The Mulhearn Corporation, this event featured a champagne brunch catered by The Coffee Bean and entertainment provided by Rod Allen Payne.
Later in the evening, Spring Market’s signature event, Girls Just Want to Have Fun!, sponsored by Progressive Bank, included catering by Thurman’s Food Factory and entertainment by Mike McKenzie, and of course, Everyone’s favorite “Market-ritas.”

Shopping continued throughout the weekend, and this year brought a new event focused on family fun – Breakfast with the Bunnies. Little ones gathered with mom for a light breakfast, a photoshoot with live bunnies, a book reading and an appearance from peter Cottontail himself.

Spring Market serves as one of the major fundraisers for the Junior League of Monroe. This year’s event was a huge success and was definitely a great gathering of gifts and gardening.
