Thoughts and Prayers for Hornbrook and Beyond

We are all holding those affected by the Hornbrook Fire in our thoughts and prayers today. The Klamathon Fire is now well over 8000 acres and growing. The burnt and threatened areas are the homes of our friends and families. Many evacuees are living with friends here in Ashland and Talent. Pray that the firefighters are able to stop this fire. To our friends and neighbors, we are here for you.

The market will go on as planned this weekend. Not sure how the smoke will affect the conditions, but we will assess it as we go. Hopefully the 37 artists and crafty folk who are signed up will be out on Calle Guanajuato showing their creations. Might see a lot of folks out and about with masks over their faces. This fire seems early and eerie.

SATURDAY 10-6 and SUNDAY 11-5

While we think good thoughts for the firefighters on the front line, we still have to show up and do what we do. For the artisan that means coming to market and sharing what we make. Even in tough moments, we need to have familiar places and things that we do. It brings us comfort. Familiar places and faces. Community coming together.

Come out this weekend and meander along Calle Guanajuato and peruse the wares created by local hands.

Great live music, dining along the creek, and handcrafted goodness.
