Artisans, traders join new Saturday market affair
- Published: June 9, 2011
The village’s new Artisan Market opened on the front lawn of the Union School House on Saturday, June 4, featuring nine local and regional vendors of art, crafts and services. Adding to the already vibrant outdoor farmer’s market scene on Saturdays, the Artisan Market was started by village resident Amanda Swanton-Young, who felt the village could use a market specifically for artists as well as for selling and trading of recycled and used items.
The booths on Saturday included Julie Moore who offered 15-minute shiatsu massages in the shade of her tent throughout the day. Vendors included Bloom Again with art made from recycled products, State Line with handmade Ohio t-shirts, Alpacas of Stewart Heritage Farm, and other metal sculpture, oil painting and jewelry making artists.
The Artisan Market is scheduled to open every Saturday, 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., on the school house lawn through October, including during this Saturday’s Street Fair. Vendors pay $28 for a one-time a 10×10 space or slightly less for a weekly space and can sign up on sight or schedule with Swanton-Young by calling 606-206-0034.
