September 2 and 3 at the Lithia Artisans Market

Erin Linton is a fine artist who has a unique style all her own. Happy she is back this weekend!

Smoky skies all around… yet, the show must go on. We are 31 artisans strong heading into the upcoming weekend. The forecasted weather is for high temperatures around 105 degrees on Saturday. If that forecast holds true, and we experience super high levels of smoke in the air, then we will close the market early on Saturday. We have the option to close at 2pm instead of our normal 6pm closing time. Management will assess the situation throughout the day on Saturday. Don’t be shocked if you find us packing down at 2pm.

Persistence is a virtue, or so it is said. That has truly been the key word for the outdoor market season this year. Stay the course, slow but steady, one foot in front of the other. Any of numerous cliches sums it up. The bottom line is that we continue to show up.

We hold good thoughts and prayers for our Texas brothers and sisters right now in their time of need. We also hold the same prayers for our own region inundated with fires on all sides. It is an interesting time to be alive, witnessing it all.

One place you can find community, beauty, and hope is at the local artisan market. We manage to keep on keepin’ on. I am ever grateful for this community of crafty artist type folk who continually amaze me with their spirited creations and their passion for what they do. Do what you love, the rest will fall into line.

We hope to see you all out and about this weekend. Here is the tentative music schedule. This may change due to the factor of air quality.
