The Marshall Handmade Market is returning on Saturday and Sunday, November 19 and 20, after a two-year pause. “In those years, we’ve all faced so many unknowns, missed opportunities for connection and disruptions to our beloved traditions,” says Jocelyn Mosser, co-director with Julie Covington of the Market.
“In a lot of ways, our upcoming show will be a long-awaited reunion for our artist community—and, at the same time, we’re so looking forward to meeting and welcoming all the new makers who were accepted to this year’s market.”
The market will be held in Marshall High Studios from 10 a.m to 5 p.m. both days. “Because we’re limited by the interior space of Marshall High Studios,” says Covington, “we’ve aimed to turn this limitation into a strength by filling our available space with the best artists and most delectable treats we can find. The result ends up being a highly curated, boutique event with a small-town feel.”
Rachel Elise Aughtry, who will be at the market selling her handmade bags, says the Market leaves her feeling motivated as a creator. “I always leave the weekend feeling so inspired and energized to work on new ideas,” she says. “There are a dozen markets any given weekend in Asheville, but even if you went to all of them, you’d still see something fresh at the Marshall Handmade Market. The collection of vendors is so unique and creates such a special atmosphere.”
Marshall High Studios is located at 115 Blannahassett Island Road, Marshall. For more information, visit MarshallHandmade.com.
