Spring Artisan Market Features Handmade Goods, Local Artisans and Signature Cocktails

The Journeyman team has curated an amazing group of makers for this year’s Journeyman Distillery’s Spring Artisan Market. They’ve been celebrating the art of making since 2012 with a wide variety of the best of the best, local, and handcrafted goods —from the featured art, accessories, and gourmet goods, to the organic grain-to-bottle spirits that go into each cocktail.

70 carefully selected vendors will fill Journeyman’s historic Featherbone corset factory’s refurbished, industrial event spaces for the seasonal 2-day market. Returning artisans will be joined by many participating for the first time. “We are springing back into action with interesting new makers and tried and true favorites,” says Journeyman Event Sales Manager, Dan Breen. “We celebrate creativity and are so happy to support and share these artists with our community.”

The 2021 Spring market will feature handmade jewelry, ceramics, wearable art, health and beauty items, photography, home decor, paper goods, gourmet food, and much more to surprise and delight. The event’s layout and scale invites interaction and conversation between makers and customers that makes the experience one-of-a-kind.

Another tasty feature of Journeyman’s Artisan Market is the festive food and drink offerings. Cocktails, as well as small plate items, can be purchased from the convenient Warren Hall bar. House-made donuts, served fresh and topped creatively, are a perennial favorite. Visitors wanting to make a day of it can compare purchases over a meal at Journeyman’s Staymaker Restaurant and add on an educational distillery tour.

This year they are also running the Welter’s Folly Big Cup Putting Saturday April 10th from 12:00PM-6:00PM.

The team putting competition offers lots of ways to play (and win) with 9” cups. The $40 entry fee, for your team of two, includes a $10 Staymaker gift card and 2 commemorative Pro V1 balls. $5 from each entry goes toward a skins game, with another $5 going toward a closest to the pin competition. Cash prizes will be awarded for the top 3 scores, plus a little something for last place. Bring your own putter or use theirs.

There is something for everyone to do to celebrate Spring.

Journeyman Distillery’s Spring Artisan Market will be held on Saturday, April 10, 10:30–7:00pm and Sunday April 11, 10:00–5:00pm. All ages are welcome and admission is free. Food and drink will be available for purchase. Visit journeymandistillery.com/calendar for more information or call 269-820-2050.
