Many of the market’s artists are online only for the season. Each week, we feature a selection of MCFM artists on our blog, Instagram stories @mcfarmersmkt and through our digital art market email newsletter. Find unique gifts, kitchenware and and other handmade items while supporting local, sustainabilty-driven artists. This week we are featuring some of the market’s ceramicists, who make functional pieces to bring some homemade to your home!
