All Souls Pizza celebrated their first year of business while welcoming the former Montford Farmer’s Market to the River Arts District on Wednesday, July 9.

The pizzeria hosted a barbecue for their staff, the market vendors and the community. Now known as the River Arts District Farmer’s Market, the market will be open every Wednesday from 2-6 pm in the green space next to All Souls on Clingman Drive.

Elliott Moss of the future Buxton Hall prepared chicken for the BBQ buffet-style dinner while local chef William Dissen and chocolatiers Jael and Dan Rattigan also contributed to the celebratory spread.
