Crafty Mart Pop-Up at Countryside Farmers' Market
On Saturday, August 8, Countryside Conservancy and Crafty Mart are teaming up to hold the mother of all markets.
On that morning from 9am-noon, additional tents will be set up as part of the Crafty Mart pop-up at Countryside Farmers’ Market in Howe Meadow.
Visitors to the weekly farmers’ market can always expect to find fresh, local, and sustainable food, as well as a small number of vendors selling handmade
gifts. At the pop-up, however, there will be fifteen additional vendors offering artisan goods including handmade rag dolls, hand-printed t-shirts, and
unique sterling silver jewelry.
Crafty Mart, referred to as “the idiosynCRAFTic fair” has been hosting events since 2009, giving Akronites a place to shop small and local artists and
makers a platform to sell their goods. Its purpose is to provide creative and engaging opportunities for artists and community members to foster artistic,
thoughtful, and community-focused lifestyles. Crafty Mart’s events have been named “Best of the City” by Akronlife Magazine
and “Favorite Place
to Do Your Holiday Shopping” by Akron Empire
. Visit their website
for vendor spotlights.
Also on August 8, Countryside is offering a Craft Cocktails class
focusing on whiskey.
Cleveland-based bartender Lorilei Bailey, of Spice Kitchen + Bar
, will teach a class about incorporating seasonal
fruits and vegetables into brunch cocktails. Advance registration is required.
So...local food, local crafts, and local cocktails? Yes please.
