Activities And Events At The Acre

The Acre offers a variety of options for food and drinks during their open hours. Our editor and her family loved the ciabatta pizza and the meat & cheese platter. The Buzz Cups were a bit strong. Wine and craft beer may be best for those looking for a relaxing visit.

In addition to their Market that features Wines, Buzz Cups, Beers, Sodas, Juices, Snacks, and Pastries, they also have a kitchen, bar, and tequila truck. A small coffee shop opened just a few weeks after The Acre opened its door, and Oyster Elizabeth will be there on most days.
