Mylikya and Germayle Franklin are busy people. Over the past couple of years, they’ve been single-handedly making Murfreesboro a better place to live. Not only have they been running their own business, but they’ve also organized multiple events and put together a network of businesses called Black Murfreesboro, which helps raise awareness for black-owned businesses.

Their most recent project may be their best idea yet. Friday Night Market in the Boro (FNMITB) is a food truck and local shopping extravaganza that takes place at the historic Cannonsburgh Village. Complete with a live DJ, a smattering of different food offerings and shopping vendors, FNMITB is just what our community needs.

FNMITB will take place each Friday in April, plus select nights in May and June. For exact dates, follow them on Facebook.
