Atherton Market: Eat pancakes for firefighters

What's better than helping a firefighter? Well, nothing, actually. Supporting firefighters is right at the top of our good-things list. But helping a firefighter by eating pancakes is pretty great, too.

The Atherton Market will hold the second annual Firefighters Pancake Breakfast Saturday morning (as in tomorrow morning, June 16). It benefits the Charlotte Fire Department Auxiliary, a nonprofit that helps take care of firefighters and their families when bad stuff happens.

From 8:30 to 10:30 a.m., you can spend $5 to get an order of pancakes, toppings that will be "as locally sourced as possible," coffee and juice. Firefighters and fire trucks also will be present.

In other Atherton developments, keep an eye out for an announcement on new market hours, coming soon. In the meantime, market hours are currently 3-7 p.m. Tuesdays, 11 a.m.-7 p.m. Wednesdays and 9 a.m.-2 p.m. Saturdays. And the address is 2104 South Blvd., near Tremont, in the Atherton Mill complex.
