HELLO, SEPTEMBER! THERE’S a new outdoor market in town the first Thursday night of the month through November that might get you thinking about, um, holiday shopping. But the Feel Good Market at The Ion multi-use development in Midtown is not just about shopping, so put away the Christmas lists. It’s also about eating and drinking, socializing, and enjoying live music.
The Ion Downtown kicks off its fall Feel Good Market series on Thursday, Sept. 1, from 5-8pm. The evening market will showcase a selection of Feel Good Group’s favorite makers from across the Houston area, including NG Jewelry, La Planta, Krishna's Favorite Things, N and R Candles, Dank Beards, DoteON, 6pm Candle, Serenity Knives, Susie's Snacks, Aura Portrait Booth, MediaFLO, Cranky Carrot Juice Co., Hey Falafel!, and Cousin’s Maine Lobster – among many others.
To liven up the atmosphere this Thursday, Houston’s very own ZZ Top tribute band Tres Hombres will be rocking out hits from the iconic little ol’ band from Texas. Getting thirsty? The sunset gathering will feature refreshments including spirits, local wine, and craft beer from regional brewing establishments. By the way, the event is free to attend but registration is required.
The Feel Good group, co-founded by Casey Barbles and Travis Denson, has been creating unique outdoor markets around Houston since 2021. The events are well known for high quality vendor lists and experiential nature. Its Thursday market series at The Ion will continue on Oct. 6 and Nov. 3 with a full line up of vendors and live music. Check out the full schedule here.
Wondering what else is open at The Ion in the food and beverage category? The latest includes Common Bond On-the-Go, a fast-casual version of the coffee shop-bakery-restaurant, and STUFF’d Wings with a menu of bone-in chicken wings and sides including mac and cheese and a variety of boudain. Late August, the brainchild of chef Chris Williams (Lucille’s) and Top Chef Season 18 finalist Dawn Burrell, will bow any day now, followed by brewpub Second Draught, and The Lymbar from chef David Cordúa.
