Local Artist Market

Andrew Francis, Potter

Like people, Andrew’s work is quirky and unique. These are traditional pots, durable and down to earth. They are formed on a foot-powered wheel using traditional techniques before being glazed and subjected to the flames. Find pho, rice, cereal and salad bowls, bottles, teapots and tea-bowls, heroic beer mugs, and a variety of coffee mugs for your table. All ware is microwave and dishwasher safe and with care can last a lifetime!

Don Nalezyty Crafts

Don is crazy passionate about carving and decorating greenwood spoons! He will have blanks ready for adult customers to carve into their own personal butter spreader. He will also have a table of hand-carved spoons and other treen for sale.

Modern Memories Furniture

Modern Memories Furniture is your place for painted and refurbished furniture. Emily Stiever offers furniture and vintage home accessories of all styles. Or, pick your own piece from the Forklift and she’ll take it home to refinish for you!

Fisticuffs Leather

Offering hand-built wrist cuffs, watch bands and accessories, all made from 100% reclaimed leather and found objects.

Family Fun

Kids will have a blast dancing and exploring. Make sure to stop at

Local Eats & Drinks

Smoke Stacks House of BBQ

From tender sliced brisket to fall-off-the-bone ribs and smoked chicken, every meat is dry-rubbed and smoked over a variety of woods (like apple, maple, hickory, or cherry wood). Get it all loaded up on a hearty sandwich, or on a plate with homemade sides: they’ve got mac & cheese, BBQ baked beans, collard greens, and more.

Pop-Up Bar

Town Center Market is back for their fourth year in a row, serving up craft beers and wines at their signature Pop-Up Bar!
