The spring edition of the Swarthmore Makers Market takes over Park Avenue this Saturday, May 13.

A celebration of the unique and offbeat, beautiful and handcrafted, the spring edition of the Swarthmore Makers Market unfurls along Park Avenue this Saturday between 9 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Coordinator Lora Pietrangelo says, “This spring’s market is an eclectic mix of artisan goods and curated vintage finds, including items for home, garden, children and pets.” Pietrangelo, who is also the proprietor of Harvey Oak Mercantile (HOM) in Swarthmore, said that 39 exhibitors include upcyclers, jewelry makers, potters and artists; artisans in wood and metal; clothing and accessories designers and makers; floral and plant designers; and vendors of “lots of great gift options for Mother’s Day, May 14.”

The Maker’s Market runs all day, providing shopping options for families with busy mornings and active afternoons. The market’s 9 a.m. opening coincides with the start of the Swarthmore Horticultural Society’s Blooms or Bust plant sale at the Swarthmore Public Library. The first Swarthmore Farmers Market of the season will complement the Makers Market from 9:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

To keep the energy going in the afternoon, there will be a performance from the SwUKEstra in the amphitheater at 2 p.m. Food and drink will be available at the Farmers Market and other stores in the Ville.

The Market will take place rain or shine. For information, see facebook.com/events/403412330019943.
