the south wedge farmer's market has been our gracious host all summer and we couldn't be more grateful! in the soon-coming weeks, we'll get the opportunity to show our gratitude by helping them out with a super-cool carrot campaign. we'll fill you in on the details soon, but for now, enjoy the sneak peek!
this week we welcome nancy topolski to our tent and she'll be bringing along her ever expanding collection of work. in her own words: "I have been a practicing, exhibiting artist and teacher for almost twenty years. I work in silver, I make artists books, make collages, make paintings, and I spin my own yarn and knit." whew! you really need to see her new jewelry made of recycled glass. very intriguing!
personally, i have been a fan of her collages for a while now and am hoping there are still some left by the time i get to the market! her juxtaposition of imagery and her careful choice of color make her work both beautiful and intelligent.
come on out to say hello and make sure you bring your wallet - you will surely find more than a few things you simply have to have!
see you there,

if you happened to see the new issue of small magazine you will likely have seen something familar. the beautiful work of our very own shanna murray! on the cover page to the story, no less! you can read a few of her thoughts about it on her blog, and you can find more of her lovely work in her shop.
this is quite an honor to be sure. congratulations, shanna!
no small feat, indeed.
p.s. check back here on monday for our newest market vendor!
just as the market is brimming with ripe fruits and vegetables, the second storie tent will be overflowing with karen's beautiful hand knit produce. with the most thoughtful choices in shape, color and stitch, her vegetables bring new meaning to the word tactile. each lovely veggie has truly been grown from seed in her skillful hands.
they are nothing short of perfection. be it for the little one in your life, or for yourself, you simply won't be able to resist them. come prepared to walk away with a bushel!
and while you are there, be sure to wish karen a happy birthday!
