Artists will be everywhere in Union Square, Somerville this Saturday, July 10th (rain date Sunday, July 11th), for the 3rd Annual Boston Handmade Marketplace. From 3-7pm enjoy live music, and support local artists, craftspeople and artisans at this annual event presented by The Somerville Arts Council and the juried artist group Boston Handmade. More than 25 locally grown artists will be showing and selling handmade jewelry, clothing, accessories, ceramics, art, photography, handspun yarn, vegan soaps, and more.
The Boston Handmade Marketplace is an outdoor art and craft exhibition featuring work by New England artists associated with Etsy.com and the Boston Handmade arts group. This exhibition promotes local independent businesses and individuals creating one-of-a-kind and limited edition handmade works in small studio environments, not factories. In addition to the exhibitors at the 2010 Boston Handmade Marketplace there will be live music and craft demonstrations throughout the day. Performers include Boston bands The Grownup Noise and One Happy Island.
