MURRIETA – A new outdoor venue, The Alleyway, opened Thursday, Oct. 8, at the corner of Washington Avenue and Juniper Street in Downtown Murrieta. From 5-9 p.m., a steady flow of people came to enjoy live music from singer and guitarist Vince Moraga and a farmers market.

Owner Casey Jurado spent three years preparing, building the facility and negotiating with the city of Murrieta for temporary use permits, that he said led to a good and workable compromise.

Every other Thursday until further notice, Jurado and the Murrieta Arts Council will present live music, farmers market and vendor booths with produce, hand-painted artwork, housewares, vintage clothing, jerky, CBD products and more.

The Alleyway, 24810 Washington Avenue, featured a Cruise Night theme, Oct. 22, with vintage cars and rockabilly fashions. For more information, visit The Alleyway on Facebook.

Free parking is available on Juniper Street and on Washington Avenue; the location has an on-site bathroom. Admission is free.
