Donna Cannella, the event’s organizer, said the market was supposed to take place in April but was postponed until this month because of the pandemic.
“People are ready to have this show,” she said. “We’ve had a tremendous amount of positive feedback. People are coming to sell from the Carolinas, Tennessee, Alabama and Florida.”
The event will have live music and eight food trucks for people to purchase alcoholic beverages, meals and desserts.
To help prevent the spread of COVID-19, attendees are encouraged to wear masks or other face coverings, as well as take advantage of the three stations at the festival equipped with hand sanitizer, disposable masks and gloves.
“I’m looking forward to seeing everyone again,” Cannella said. “It’s been a long time since we’ve had a show.”
