KYLE — The Railhouse Bar, a family-friendly bar located at 107 E. Center Street in Kyle, hosted its first Railhouse Market Day on Sunday, Aug. 7, where numerous vendors were invited to sell their products and connect with the community.
Community members were invited to shop, eat and listen to live music performed by the Six Sons of a Gun while spending time with friends and family.
Individuals of legal age were able to buy drinks at the bar and order food from Courson’s Barbecue, a food truck that served various Birria foods, including Birria tacos, Birria quesadillas and Birria melts. Community members could also order food from Badassfoods512.
Marina Luna, the owner of Rainbow Kids Apparel, enjoyed the opportunity to gather with other local businesses at the market.
“I think they’re great for small businesses like us to get out there and live our dreams,” Luna said.
Luna was inspired by her son to open her business.
“I realized there are never mom and son or son and dad or just cute son outfits in general, so that got me thinking,” Luna said.
Bernada Martinez and Carol Velasquez opened Buff City Soap in February and found the market to be a great networking opportunity.
“We’re trying to get our name out there and get events and let people know we’re there,” Velasquez said.
Several members of the community thought the event was a perfect activity for a Sunday and the live music brought a calming atmosphere.
The Railhouse Bar plans to host market days on the first Sunday of every month.
