Watch a "Sheep to Shawl" demonstration. A certified sheep shearer will be on hand doing an actual shearing, along with crafters who will show the stages of converting raw fleece into combed roving, spun yarn and finally into wearable wool garment.

There are a few new vendors at the market in addition to many returning vendors. Look for the usual season's produce, homemade sausage, farm-raised meats, artisanal breads, honey, flowers, handcrafted soaps, homemade gift cards and much more.
