The Market at Sawyer Yards got it’s start in the spring of 2016. The market seeks out folk artists, makers, funky art, recycled, up-cycled, pet treats, designers, greeting cards, yard art and packaged foods made locally. We do accept some traditional art but only about 10% per show. In a very short time The Market at Sawyer Yards has established a solid client base. The market receives great publicity from founder Mitch Cohen, who has 15 years experience and the Sawyer Yards Creative Campus. It's a desirable and well-established venue, in a great setting.
