We are open and the market is bustling. 38 artisans strong heading into the upcoming weekend. The forecast is for continued cooler temperatures and somewhat smoky skies. We are a hearty bunch, but don’t forget to bring a facemask or bandana in case the smoke is an issue. If the smoke is extreme, the market may close early.
SAT 10-6 ~ SUN 11-5
Our prayers and good thoughts are with the firefighters battling the blazes on all fronts. We hope the conditions continue to improve and we get through this as soon as possible. As well, we are staying positive for the East Coast and Florida as they grapple with Hurricane Irma. Continuing thoughts for all the folks left in the wake of Hurricane Harvey. We are still moving through it and we just keep on showing up. Nature seems to be telling us something, I wonder if we are going to listen.
The photo above features our most veteran member of the Lithia Artisans Market. Jim Young and his wife Carol of the Hat People have been making and selling hats in the pacific northwest forever. Their hats are legendary in the art and craft circuit. They have had their hands full these days and have not had as much time to sell at our market as they usually do. We are grateful to have them on board again as we head into autumn, hat season. Jim is a community person to his core, always engaged in promoting the use of public space for the benefit of one and all. His philosophy is in line with the mission of the Lithia Artisans Market — creating viable venues for the local arts and crafts community. It is good for the local economy, it is good for the community. The benefit is mutual and widespread.
Join us this weekend for art, craft, and live music on Calle Guanajuato, behind the Ashland plaza, creekside.
NOTE: Hours of Operation and Music Schedule may vary depending on air quality due to the forest fires raging on all sides of our part of the world.
