The Marketplace will be a bit different this month! Because a number of vendors had to withdraw from the lineup, the event was in danger of being cancelled. I had already refunded fees and notified the registered vendors. But there were enough committed that we decided to move forward, especially since Marietta College was coordinating Family Weekend from the Armory and the day was going to be full of energy downtown. Currently over a dozen vendors are registered, with more being added.
So the event is not a true Marietta Marketplace, but we are calling it the Fall Marketplace. The event will run from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm and you will find some of your favorite vendors, along with some new ones. You will also see the trolley making stops at the Armory as students and families discover the charm of downtown Marietta. There will be activities and promotions encouraging participants to engage with the shops and businesses while also enjoying the points of interest in the area.
It’s a perfect way to kick off the autumn season–a lovely day outdoors shopping and connecting with the friendly people of Marietta. Hope to see you at the Armory!
