The Bay Street Shopping Center is celebrating the grand opening of the much anticipated American Eagle Outfitters and the start of a monthly Farmers’ Market this weekend. Bay Street will close the main thoroughfare to vehicle traffic and debut a monthly market orchestrated by the non-profit Pacific Coast Farmers’ Market Association from 9am to 1pm.



American Eagle Outfitters opened their newest retail store on Wednesday, replacing long-time tenants Williams-Sonoma and Kay Jewelers who shuttered after last holiday. AE’s lingerie brand, Aerie, also opened next door. There were no grand opening sales or celebration planned for either store.

Farmers’ market shoppers can expect to find local fruits, vegetables, fish, organics, cheeses, baked goods, cut flowers, crafted preserves, honeys, and oils available for purchase. Highlighting the entertainment will be Professional Dance Instructor Tytus Bergtrom who will give country dance lessons from 11am to 1pm, followed by a hoedown. A free reusable bag will be given to the first 500 shoppers.
