We are 37 artisans strong at the Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland (LAMA), our biggest turnout of the season. This weekend you will discover all sorts of locally crafted items at the weekend marketplace along Ashland Creek.
SAT. 10-6 and SUN. 11-5
So happy to feel the warmth of the sunshine. The weather forecast looks real good and, lucky us, there is a World Music Festival happening in Lithia Park at the Bandshell. It is a great weekend to be out and about in downtown Ashland, so much cool stuff going on. The entire downtown will be like one big festival this weekend. Fun!
The photo above features Alissa Clark. Alissa is a long time member of our market who spent the better part of last season living in Florence, Oregon, on the coast. Lucky! We are stoked to have her back in our midst this weekend with her whimsical, colorful, fun assortment of pottery… mugs, vases, bowls, wall-hangings, and much more. Alissa isn’t here all the time, so take advantage and come by to say, “howdy!”.
Our 2017 Souvenir Booklets are hot off the presses and available this weekend at the market. They are beautiful! They feature the guild of artists and crafty folk who make up the membership of the market. A wonderfully colorful and textural representation of what you will discover every weekend at Lithia Artisans Market. Come by and get yours, they are free and they are pretty darn cool. Cover art by local Talent, Oregon artist Katrina Meister.
We have a great lineup of music in store for the upcoming weekend. Sunday afternoon we welcome Maury Ave. to the market. They are an energetic outlaw folk duo hailing from Denver, Colorado. Additionally, it is Ashland World Music Festival weekend featuring all kinds of great music on Saturday from 12:00 until 6:00 at the Bandshell in Lithia Park. This outdoor festival runs Saturday only and is just a couple blocks up from the market.
