In its ninth season, the non-profit Crossroads Museum event returns to downtown offering an eclectic mix of local and regional artisans and craftsmen who sell their wares in an open-air, grassroots setting.
“Each year, it is our main goal to do everything possible to make the Green Market even better than the previous year,” said museum board president Cathy Wood. “This year we have put into place stricter rules for our vendors in order to provide our customers with the best, most purest form of handcrafted only products.”
Set for 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., the market is free to the public.
“For the first time in more than five seasons, we have a new Green Market t-shirt and tote bag,” said Wood. “Another fundraiser for the museum, the t-shirt features special market-themed artwork designed by Katie Briggs. The totes, sponsored by CB&S Bank, also feature some of Katie’s work.”
Shirt and tote prices begin at $20 and can be purchased inside the red Coca-Cola trailer in the garden or inside the museum gift shop on market day.
Local entertainment will also be provided throughout the event.
Corinth-based youngster Hannah Johnson will show off her latest learnings paired with a string guitar and Iuka-based bluesman Kevin Thornton will rock with covers and self-written sets.
Johnson will perform 9:30 to 11 a.m., while Thornton will go on 12 to 2 p.m.
Presented by Magnolia Regional Health Center, the Daily Corinthian, CB&S Bank, Coca-Cola, H&R Block and Visit Corinth, the market will feature more than 60 vendors including 36 season sellers.
Many vendors are returning favorites, but Wood said the market will also feature around 15 new vendors who have never attended a market.
