Something New!

The Farmer's Market will be adding CRAFTS- every Saturday (from 9 to noon). The crafts have to be related to food, cooking, gardening or some form of environmentally friendly product. One of our craft vendors new this year is Randi Bachman of Carthage. Randi makes things using "repurposed cloth", in other words in the tradition of quilters, she takes fabric that is no longer useful in its current form and transforms it. At her stand, you'll find rag rugs, totes, bags, and clothes pin holders. You'll probably also find her husband Leighton Cordell (a hometown boy) and her young son Julius (see photo). If you're looking for a gift that says local, you'll want to check with Randi at the Saturday market.
Check with the Market Manager's table if you think you make a craft item that might be a fit in this area.
