August 12 and 13 at Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland

When the market is packed, our overflow space has been affectionately called “The Village”. The Market is so huge this weekend that “The Village” is open for business.

Another full market as many of our regulars return from shows out of the area. 42 art booths will be set up on Calle Guanajuato, along Ashland Creek this Saturday and Sunday.

SAT 10-6 SUN 11-5

You will find all sorts of cool, locally crafted, merchandise in the various artisan run market spaces where Lithia Park intersects with downtown. We have amazing live music lined up all weekend, dining along the creek, and a chance to meet the local artisans before or after taking in a play, strolling through the park, or just milling about the Ashland scene. The Lithia Artisans Market is a must see place to wander through and peruse the handcrafted wares.

I look at the list of artist and crafty folk coming to the market this weekend and I feel like I’m looking at an all-star lineup. This market is looking better than I have seen it in all my years at the market, 23 years and counting. Thanks to all of you veterans and promising newbies. You make my job as manager a pleasure.

A quick shout out to Erisy Watt. She and her band are passing through from Santa Barbara. Raised in Nashville, TN, music flows through her blood. With honey-sweet vocals and a soft hum that speaks to an older time, Erisy Watt has cultivated a sound of simplicity, a synthesis of soul and folk that is freshly her own. Often joined by stand-up bassist and vocalist, Rafaell Rozendo, and guitarist, Jeremy Ferrara, Watt delivers every sound, song, and story with joy and ease.  She and her band play Sunday afternoon from 2:30-4:30. See our full Music Schedule below. Follow links for music clips and more.

Erisy Watt is traveling through the region. We are lucky to have them for a set at the Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland (LAMA).
