Approximately five years ago our friend, Kristen Gastaldo, started something amazing in the Lowcountry. At the time, she was General Manager at the Music Farm which on a Thursday night might have been rocking with Trombone Shorty, but Sunday hosted St. Andrews City Church. So, why couldn't Saturday afternoon host a local market for artisans? Kristen's idea was realized with the Lowcountry Artist Market and went on to produce 13 markets at the Music Farm since 2010.
With Kristen now living in the UK, she decided to hand the Lowcountry Artist Market over to us to help continue the great resource she started for local artisans and crafters. For our first endeavor, we've teamed up with Lowcountry Local First for the Buy Local Block Party to be held on Saturday, November 21. We'll share another post closer to the market date, but we wanted to shout it from the rooftops that the Lowcountry Artist Market is back and ready to fulfill your local shopping needs just before the holidays! We look forward to more dates in 2016 and continuing to support the 'Buy Local' movement.
Vendors interested in applying to share their craft at the Buy Local Party can apply here. All goods must be handmade or vintage.
