From 10 am – 4 pm, shoppers can expect to find food including Nolaa Granolaa, The Salted Pig and Sweet Potato Johnny, soulful beats courtesy of DJ Aerlie Wilde, unique handmade wares from Homebody Collective, Jelly Bros, Ellingwood Soap Company, and Giftologie to name just a few.

Stock up on all your crafty requirements, and don’t forget to line up early for a chance to get a free swag bag at 10 am and a free gift at 2 pm.
