Greensboro Farmers Curb Market - Made 4 the Market

 

Greensboro Farmers Curb Market

Made 4 the Market Arts, Crafts & Pottery
Outdooor Marketplace – Fall Edition

Sunday, October 25 & November 15
11 am to 4 pm

The public is invited to the MADE 4 the Market Artisan, Craft and Pottery Markets, which are scheduled for Sunday, October 25 and Sunday, November 15, 2020 from 11am – 4pm, outside at the Greensboro Farmers Curb Market (501 Yanceyville Street).

MADE 4 the Market is a juried marketplace and a favorite shopping tradition in Greensboro; with a wide variety of handcrafted and curated products including jewelry, body care items, pottery, artwork, wood turnings, glass objects, up-cycled bags and clothing, delicious shelf-stable NC food products, and more at this retail marketplace. All products at MADE 4 the Market are locally made representing  50 emerging and favorite returning unique artisans from around the Piedmont. Proceeds from MADE 4 the Market goes directly to the artists, which helps to keep dollars in the community while supporting talented artists and producers across North Carolina.

Local artisans have been particularly hard hit during the COVID-19 pandemic, impacted by the cancellation of shows, fairs and events across the state. Several changes to the market will be in place to meet and exceed NC executive orders for retail venues which include six-foot distancing, reduced capacity customers entry, and masks required. The Market is fashioned after the weekly outdoor farmers market with a single front entrance on Yanceyville Street and a separate exit from the Lindsay Street parking lot where the market  will be held.

General admission is free to the public starting at 11 am. A limited number of free early access tickets, allowing early entry from 10am – 11am for vulnerable customers, are available with Express Hour Tickets on sale at Ticket Me Triad and in the Market during open hours at the information hub.
