One last reminder that the Emerson-Garfield Farmers’ Market is holding its first-ever Craftwalk this Friday, September 26. It will run concurrent with and alongside the usual weekly food-oriented market (806 W Knox, 3-7pm).
So far 23 vendors have confirmed that they’ll be joining us, and some of them will have multiple tables. Their goods include sculptural and painted art; custom jewelry from beads, metal, hemp, glass and wood; upcycled clothing, aprons and handbags; handmade health and beauty items; embroidery; doll clothes and doggie coats; holiday decorations; one-of-a-kind notepads and photo albums; hand-carved slingshots; knitwear such as hats, sweaters and scarves; duct-tape wallets; unique furniture and “usables” for your home and garden; greeting cards; and tons more.
In other words, there ought to be something for everyone, so there should be plenty of items that will make great gifts for others or treats for yourself.
This marks the first of what the market hopes will be an annual event, so please spread the word in advance and stop by on the day to help make it a success for the vendors, the market and our neighborhood. If you’re on Facebook, we encourage you to RSVP on the Craftwalk event page and share it.
