Local Art at Fall Craft Fair and Free Chef’s Tasting
Cary, N.C. – Local artists will bring their hand-crafted works to the Western Wake Farmers’ Market on Sat., Nov., 6, 8 am-1 pm, for the Fall Craft Fair. The craft fair will be held in conjunction with the weekly farmers’ market at Carpenter Village Marketplace, 1225 Morrisville Carpenter Rd., in Cary. The Fall Craft Fair features 52 local artists’ hand-crafted works, including pottery, jewelry, holiday décor and gifts, stoneware, baby and children’s gifts, birdhouses, hand-knitted and felted accessories, glassware, natural soaps and lotions, and much more. All artists live and produce their works within 125 miles of the marketplace.
Herons Chef Scott Crawford will be in the Education Tent with free samples of a delicious soup featuring local autumn flavors. Friends from the NC 10%Campaign also will be at market to talk about how we can build a local economy by spending just 10% of food dollars locally, and the kids will love free face painting at the market courtesy of LynneSue Fischer.
