Thursday Market in the South Perry District is kicking off peak season with its annual food truck rally.
Thursday – in addition to live music and the chance to shop for produce, eggs, bread, meat and spices – customers can also grab dinner from an array of food trucks. About nine are expected to participate.
The market opened for the season in early May. During the height of the season, which starts this week, it expands into the neighboring lot and doubles in size to 50 vendors.
Thursday Market takes place from 3 to 7 p.m. on Thursdays in the parking lot of The Shop at 924 S. Perry St. On the web: thursdaymarket.org.

A GoFundMe campaign has been set up for Allie’s Vegan Pizzeria & Café, which was damaged in a fire on June 5 and could remain closed for repairs for three to six months.
An estimated $30,000 in damage was done to the north Spokane eatery at 4803 N. Nevada St. The fire started outside the restaurant and burned grass and juniper bushes before spreading to the building’s attic and roof.
Owner Atania Gilmore sustained minor burns and smoke inhalation fighting the fire before firefighters arrived. She was treated at the scene.
Gilmore opened the restaurant in March 2015. She had adopted a vegan diet two and a half years earlier in hopes of becoming a faster trail runner. In 2014, about a year after going vegan, Gilmore, then 56, was named one of seven female finalists in PETA Prime’s annual Sexiest Vegan Over 50 contest.
