Winding Vine Virtual Market

March 28

Online

Join us for the VIRTUAL version of Winding Vine Market on Saturday, March 28th.

"The Spring Winding Vine Market has always been a great way to kick off the Spring season. It's been such a special way for our community to celebrate local vendors, curators, creators, and musicians. We know how much time and energy our vendors put into their businesses and that's what makes the Winding Vine Market such a great event! We are so so sad that this Spring's event won't go on as we'd hoped and we are really sorry that this decision had to be made. That's why we thought we'd still give you, our beautiful community, a way to support these amazing vendors-- through a virtual market!"

We will post the official virtual shopping location on Saturday, March 28th.
