Try your hand at a game of Corn Hole and sample some of Hog Wild’s delicious pulled pork and pulled chicken. Today only at the market, this popular local restaurant will also offer beef brisket, full racks of ribs,  homemade barbecue sauces, corn bread, baked goods and other special treats.  For some relief from the heat, cool off with glass of freshly brewed and iced hibiscus, sweet, or un-sweet tea.
