LEXINGTON, Ky. (WTVQ) – The Bluegrass Creative Market opens this weekend in Lexington, giving local artists of all kinds a chance to showcase and sell their wares.
Marie Pullen, founder of Bluegrass Creative Market, says all vendors are local artisans.
“We will have interior design and we will have a lot of woodwork,” Pullen said. “Bath and beauty products are made. We also have several jewelry manufacturers.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, Pullen says safety is a priority for vendors and participants, “We will follow all of Governor Beshear’s requirements to be prepared for COVID. I completely rearranged the interior of the market, mainly to make more space.
Pullen says vendors and volunteers will wear face masks and social distancing. “We ask all of our customers aged five and over to do the same. “
Buyers are requested to check in inside before browsing sellers by registering your cell phone number. Pullen says that if they reach their maximum capacity, they can text you to let you know when you’ll be allowed to shop indoors to avoid overcrowding.
A voluntary donation of $ 2 is collected at the door of the Shriners Hospital for Children.
The grand opening of the market is scheduled for Sunday July 12 from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. at Oleika Shriners located at 236 Southland Drive in Lexington. The event will take place rain or shine.
Food trucks will also be on site with food and drinks to purchase.
