It's all about celebrating the people in the area and giving them a platform to showcase their skills with the community. Think of it as a block party for the makers, craftsman, and even those who just like to appreciate the workers. Wood-workers, florists, painters, honey producers, fresh coffee grinders, and the like.. everyone is welcome. Whether you want to share what you do with the community and earn some extra cash to support your work --- or if you simply want to browse and appreciate the makers of the area (and maybe even bring something back home with you), we'd love to see you there.
