Assuming you're a resident of this city, when was the last time you went to Saturday Market, not counting times you were showing tourists around? For me it's been...

(However, I did visit the Market's holiday pop-up shop at the Galleria on several occasions.)
The outdoor market that has become synonymous with crowds, driftwood birdhouses, and elephant ears is doing something interesting on September 20. For what appears to be the first time ever, they are extracting the vendors who work in apparel and accessory design, moving them across the river and off the waterfront, and featuring them in a fashion show that's on a Thursday, of all things.
