Longer days, warmer weather and a blooming landscape always bring a refreshing sense of endless possibilities for the coming year. And whether you’re looking to renew your home, your garden or yourself, there is no better way to celebrate spring than at the second annual Springtime in the Country artisan market April 5-7 at the Rochester Dome Arena, 2695 East Henrietta Road, Henrietta.
This year’s edition of Springtime in the Country welcomes 150 artisans from across North America and boasts a stunning addition of more than 40 first-time artisans, with products including gourmet food and wine, craft beverages, garden art, metalworks, custom furniture, designer jewelry, home décor, spa-quality bath and beauty products, children’s gifts and so much more. With Easter and Mother’s Day right around the corner, Springtime in the Country promises to be the perfect destination for seasonal gift buying.
“This market gets better every year, thanks to the new artisans participating and also our patrons who see the quality and value of the products here,” noted Dan Kaczynski of Premier Promotions. “We are definitely experiencing a resurgence in community markets as consumers are making meaningful purchases from small businesses. This market is a one-of-a-kind collection of small, artisanal businesses.”
