The national nonprofit Alex’s Lemonade Stand, which raises money to combat childhood cancer, will set up at The Wall, a famer’s market in the Flower District, every Saturday in September. From 9 a.m.-2 p.m. starting Sept. 6, customers can sample lemonade made from locally grown fruit, and enjoy lemon-infused treats including Buddy Pops and bars from St. Moritz Bakery.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation grew out of a front yard lemonade stand that 4-year-old cancer patient Alexandra Scott started in 2000 with the goal of raising money to find a cure for pediatric cancer. The foundation has raised more than $75 million. Alex died in 2004.
The Wall is on Wall between Seventh and Eighth streets.
