Here is a list of my summer 2012 shows!
Barr Street Market begins Saturday, July 7th and runs until Saturday, September 15th. This is on Saturdays ONLY from 9am until 1pm. The location is: 302 East Berry Street, Fort Wayne, IN 46802. I love to be a vendor at the Market!
"YLNI is celebrating the eighth year of the Barr Street Market in 2012! This year is shaping up to be a great season, with the market running July 7th through September 15th. Our market offers fresh and unique local produce, plants, meats, baked goods and homemade crafts in a cultural setting. The Barr Street Market is a producer-only market, meaning that our vendors personally make or grow the products they sell. Every vendor is local, coming from Allen or surrounding counties. Live music and children’s activities add to the experience." (From YLNI http://www.ylni.org/events/barr-street-market/)
