Countryside Conservancy’s Howe Meadow Farmers’ Market this weekend will include handmade gifts, along with fresh, local sustainable food.
The Pop-Up Crafty Mart will join Countryside Conservancy this Saturday, Aug. 8, 9 a.m. to noon, with additional tents at the Farmers’ Market in Howe Meadow, with 15 additional vendors offering artisan goods including handmade rag dolls, hand-printed T-shirts, and unique sterling silver jewelry.
Crafty Mart, referred to as “the idiosynCRAFTic fair” has been hosting events since 2009, giving Akronites a place to shop small and local artists and makers a platform to sell their goods. Its purpose is to provide creative and engaging opportunities for artists and community members to foster artistic, thoughtful and community-focused lifestyles.

Celebrated Cleveland bartender Lorilei Bailey, of Spice Kitchen + Bar, will teach a class about incorporating seasonal fruits and vegetables into brunch cocktails. The class is $20 per person, and includes two beverages. Advance registration is recommended. (Click here to register.)
