Celebrating 24 years of fine craft and art, Springtime in the Country returns to the Event Center at the Hamburg Fairgrounds from Friday, April 6 through Sunday, April 8. This year’s edition of Springtime in the Country features garden art, metal works, vintage fashion, original wall art, custom furniture, designer jewelry, home décor, spa-quality bath and beauty products, gourmet foods, children’s toys, pottery and so much more. Springtime in the Country is the perfect destination for gift buying for Mother’s Day, spring birthdays or simply to indulge yourself!
After a successful debut, the Spring Market will once again be featured at Springtime in the Country. The Spring Market is a unique retail addition featuring all that we love about the season — fresh fruits and vegetables, fragrant flowers, specialty foods, craft wineries, brewers and distillers, food trucks and mobile kitchens and much more!
As always, shoppers are afforded the unique opportunity to connect with over 200 artisans from across the nation, learn about their considerable talents and purchase only handcrafted items.
“This market epitomizes the trend in our community — the importance of buying small, handmade and local,” notes Daniel Kaczynski of Premier Promotions. “Today’s consumers are making their purchases meaningful, buying from small businesses.”
Springtime in the Country hours are 4 to 9 p.m. Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Sunday at the Fairgrounds Event Center in Hamburg. Admission is $7 for adults and seniors and complimentary return passes are available at the event’s information booth. Children under 12 are free.
