After all the rain, the ground is wet at the Artisan Market, but everyone is happy to be there. Tents fill the grass with all kinds of fun goods. Many vendors have hand-crafted jewelry or hand-painted signs. Several tents feature artists who work on paper and others who paint on canvas like Evan Abrahamson. Many prints and signs are all about Minnesota as are flannel shirts each with a MN-shaped appliqué. You’ll find clever re-makes of vintage blankets, lamps, and lunch boxes to name just a few. The sweet bibs, hair bows, baby booties, and knit hats make great gifts. Pumpkins in various shapes and colors and assorted materials (even bunting) abound. And, yes, there are some great old metal farm pieces as well as re-purposed small furniture. In other words, something for everyone. Did I mention packaged granola, tea, and salsa? Plus prepared foods and drinks to enjoy onsite! Inside is a large area with clothes and bags, and lots of art, dishes, pillows, furniture, décor, and paint. Be prepared to walk a little way and dress for the weather. Open 10 to 5 through Sunday at 7988 County Road 6 in Independence. Happy saling!
