FULTON, NY – CNY Arts Center announces its second annual Arts Market and invites artists, crafters, antiques and food vendors to participate Sept. 15 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. in the old Nestles parking lot on Fay Street in Fulton.
“The Arts Market was a huge success last year with more than 40 vendors and a crowd of nearly 800 shoppers that stopped by throughout the day which coincides with Fulton’s annual city-wide yard sale. It’s a great way to wrap up a busy summer and give artists, crafters and other vendors one more chance to display their work to the general public,” said event coordinator Kiley Casper. “The large parking lot proved to be a popular location for this gathering with ample room for everyone. It is the one event from last year that people seem to remember the most!”
“This is truly a market as opposed to an arts festival in the variety of vendors we’re accepting,” Casper continued. “We had several requests last year from independent consultants who work from home selling commercial product lines. Because these small business owners can have a significant economic impact and need to reach a broader public, we’re accepting a limited number of vendors from this category along with hand-made original arts and crafts. We believe this will give shoppers a wide variety of items for every pocketbook. In keeping with the theme of the city-wide yard sale, we’re also accepting a limited number of flea-market vendors.”
CNY Arts Center will also raffle a hefty basket of goods donated from vendors participating in the event.
Activities for children will include sidewalk chalk art and bubble fun.
Food vendors will be onsite at this year’s event along with strolling minstrels Merry Mischief who will make an encore appearance fresh from the Arts Fest held in Fulton’s War Memorial in June.
Food vendors, artists and other vendors are encouraged to apply online at www.CNYArtsCenter.com or call 216-8790 or 598-8812 for more information.
