Among Saturday’s featured artists are: broom maker George Jones from Florence; Betty Bain of Black Belt Treasures with her hand-woven baskets and ornaments; Laurey Glenn and her Southwest-inspired jewelry; Michelle Leach with her glazed pottery and ornaments; six printmakers and print artists from PaperWorkers Local; holiday wrapping paper, calligraphy cards and prints from Lovely Lettering; and snowman salt and pepper grinders, pens and other handcrafted items from Sweet Woodworks.
Outside, the last market of the season will include baby goats for petting (and selfies) in the chef demo area on 29th Street, courtesy of Stone Hollow Farmstead.
