Use it UP! Come make whatever you can imagine with our leftover craft materials! It's National Clean Up Day and we're going to art-it-up at the same time!!
Our featured artist is Heather Femine - A Heather Bag. Heather is back at the market with her gorgeous bags! When Heather sets out to create her bags, she gathers up her fabrics and spreads them out on a large surface and starts mixing and matching them. It all seems chaotic at first, but the blends quickly start making sense. She mostly uses reclaimed fabrics, fabric samples and remnants of discontinued fabrics
9:30 - Art Miron - Art, on vocals and acoustic guitar, and his long-time bandmate, Millard Brown on electric guitar and harmony vocals, will present finely crafted and carefully chosen songs from the Americana Tradition (country, alternative country, singer-songwriter, folk and pop backgrounds).
11:30 - John Bickel - John, an extraordinary keyboardist and singer, and his band boast a unique blend of musical influences which all come together into a sonic jambalaya every time they hit the stage!
The food truck is Obsidian Eats serving up vegan versions of comfort food classics.
Swarthmore Historical Society will be providing info and selling tickets for its biannual house tour on Sunday, September 23 from 12:30-5:30 pm.

A Video About the Market (lovingly produced by Beautiful Social from St. Joseph's University)
As said by a Swarthmore Farmers Market guest, "Tom (Monari) and Sara (Williams) were awesome, and so were the children who danced to their music!".
We love having live music at every market. Come visit us and see all that we have to offer!
