Sunday, October 3rd will be a special day at Garden Station. It’s true that local art and produce are not something new to find here. The space at 4th Street and Wayne Avenue is already home to 13 “urban farmers” throughout the growing season and everywhere you look there are different works of art. There are colorful murals that adorn the 600′ of wall space, sculptures dotted throughout the two acre lot, and whimsical touches such as the wooden man and the toilet planter and even the garden shed itself with its colorful bottle wall. However on Sunday, October 3rd you can take some of the local art and produce home with you during the first ever Garden Station Sunday Market and Harvest Festival.
There are already lots of farmer’s markets in the area, but nothing on Sunday, and Garden Station would mix it with local artists and crafters that you often see at Circus events. So far the line up includes fiber arts, vegetable plants, free range eggs, glass art, fresh vegetables, homemade jams, locally made color cosmetics, jewelry, bird houses and more. Local acoustic musicians “The Corndrinkers” will also entertain during the market, which will run from noon until 3pm. Garden Station hopes to make this a regular weekly event next season.
