Offering locally made gifts, stocking stuffers, teacher gifts and treats to pamper you & your loved ones. Please join us for the November market. The November & December markets are our busiest and we couldn't be happier about it. We can not wait to see all of you very soon.
The pop-up shops for the November 18th Market are as follows:
*Wild & Free AND Black Forest Bakery
~A collective of women who were searching for a way to bring back to the community while working with raw, natural and organic materials. This allows us to appease that inner need and drive to create, and an opportunity to do so with ethically sourced and homegrown materials. Each member of our tribe brings something unique and original to the table including; jewelry, bath & body products, baked goods, plants, clothes and home decor.
~Tommasmade kitchen boards are made with responsibly sourced local hardwoods from the urban forest. Each eco-friendly piece is shaped by hand to highlight its natural beauty. The beautifully labored kitchen boards are ideal for serving and presentation, and they make memorable hostess and holiday gifts. Get to the market early. These will sell out.
