Blind Tiger hosting Homegrown Artisan Martket

by Rebecca Harrelson

Lulu Page founder of Homegrown Artisan Market spoke with YES! Weekly about the two-day buy local market happening this weekend. The Blind Tiger normally hosts Homegrown Artisan Markets one Sunday a month, but this month there are two opportunities to buy local, eat yummy food, and listen to live music, all under the same roof. “This is a special two day holiday market, so people have two chances to get out and see what we’re all about,” Page said. “It’s not just a craft show, I feel like it’s an experience. From the live music, the food, all the artists right there and the option to loosen up with a cocktail or a cold beer makes this an awesome way to do your holiday shopping and to meet and mingle with our local creators.” The first market was held in April, and the local buyers and sellers have grown immensely. The Blind Tiger sets up with more tables, candles, vendors, and different food trucks. Page is dedicated to bringing different artistic communities together. She constantly is bridging the gap by showing how holiday shopping and supporting your local economy go hand in hand. This two-day holiday market will be December 5th and 6th from noon to 6pm. For this two-day market there will be a food drive for a local soup kitchen, so Page is asking everyone to bring can foods. After this December market, Page will be taking the winter off allowing her artists to replenish their stock, then Homegrown Artisan Market will be back on April 3. “We will have some great sales and specials happening this weekend from most of our vendors, so keep a lookout and ask about any deals they may be offering,” Page said.
