Crafty vendors were set up all throughout the inside of the Barn on Hubbard with wares from handmade soaps and handmade jewelry, to coffee and chicken tacos.
CALLICOON -- Sullivan County was buzzing with markets, festivals, events and visitors from all over the state on Labor Day weekend, including the Makers Market held at the Barn on Hubbard just above the Diehl farm in the Town of Callicoon.
Last year was the first for the market that was organized with thoughtfulness, effort, and love by Shawn and Kris of the Farmhouse Project in Hortonville. A beautiful success last year, it was even bigger and better this year, with more vendors, music, and a Terrain & Table dinner to top it off.
“We're overjoyed with the massive amount of people who came out to support this year's Makers Market. We got to see neighbors, friends, family and met some of our loyal followers who came to visit Callicoon from the metro area and as far as Ohio who wanted to spend the day with us,” said Shawn. “With last years successful market, we wanted to expand on the amount of makers and food options.
We also planned to have a better layout of makers and live music outside so folks could just come and have a picnic. We ended Saturday evening with a sold out Terrain & Table dinner in a secret area of the cornfield at The Barn on Hubbard with local Chefs Erik & Megan of Have Knife Will Travel."
With vendors set up both inside the barn space and outside, there were handmade goods and wares from socks to blouses, teas and coffee to mugs and dishes, goat milk soaps to skin creams and everything in between. People with growling stomachs waited in line for pizza from Benji and Jake's in Kauneonga Lake or delicious cakes from Cait's Cakes out of Callicoon, among a variety of others. If you were thirsty there were homemade sodas, craft beers, cocktails, and wine.
With the weather holding off on rain and letting the sun shine through the clouds, the weekend was perfect for a picnic on the barn lawn listening to live bands from open til close.
“With a year of planning, these types of events don't happen overnight. A special thank you to Sarah and John Diehl from The Barn on Hubbard event venue who let us use their property and believed in our vision for this year's market,” Shawn beamed.
“We couldn't have executed this market without Katie Welsh of The Family Tie Project and her amazing team. Thank you to all the talented makers who participated with us this year, we couldn't have done it without you,” Shawn continued, “and most importantly, thank you to our supportive community who came out and spent the weekend with us.”
