The holiday bustle and excitement continues in Athens! We’ve got farm fresh food at holiday markets, concerts, Christmas breakfast with the Grinch, and more. Get in the spirit and gather with the community with these five things to know in Athens this week. 

Athens Big City Bread Holiday Market

Big City Bread Cafe is a hometown favorite for farm-fresh fare, but this week gives you an entirely different reason to visit. Their annual holiday market is happening this Thursday and Friday, December 13-14, starting at 5 p.m. each night. The market will feature local makers and artists, making it easy to finish your Christmas shopping in a single stop. Plus, you can grab a delicious dinner at the cafe while you’re there!

Records and Brew at Southern Brewing Company

Southern Brewing Company brings you the best in American craft beers every second Friday of the month. Starting at 6 p.m. on Friday, SBC transforms into a hotspot of fellow beer lovers and classic vinyl albums. DJ Osmose is leading the charge with an eclectic mix of Funk, Disco, Soul, Reggae, Classic Hip Hop, and more. Even better, this event has no cover charge and is dog- and kid-friendly.
