So take a stroll around Vance Monument and Hoss Haley’s marvelous fountain and experience the textures and forms of a truly unique garden, all the while browsing incredible art and speaking with passionate artists. The fun begins at 10:00 am each Saturday and continues until 5:00 pm. This year’s remaining dates include October 6, 13, and 20.
At the event you are sure to find the finest in handcrafted art that Asheville-area artists have to offer. Skilled workers of glass, ceramics, wood, jewelry, and metal make their shops open to display to the public at every market.
