Things to Do in Downtown Huntsville
Things to Do:
- Greene Street Market is a cornucopia of organic bliss.

The outdoor market (located at the corner of Greene Street and Eustis Avenue) is open on Thursdays from May through October. The hours are 4 pm – 8 pm from May – August, 4 pm – 7 pm in September, and 3 pm – 6 pm in October.
