Artisan Day at the market

Putnam - posted Jul, 15 2013

PUTNAM- The Putnam Saturday Farmers' Market (PSFM) is holding an Artisan Day from 10:00 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, July 20, at the Putnam Riverview Marketplace, located at 18 Kennedy Drive. The Market’s regular farmers will also be there to sell an increasing variety of summer produce. This month’s Artisan Day will be featuring two PSFM favorites – Aspinock Spring Pottery and Mon Chi Tree – as well as a spinning demonstration and the sale of some handmade wool and other fiber items by Martha’s Fiber Friends. Aspinock Spring Pottery sells hand-thrown pieces of pottery that are both beautiful and useful, from bowls to teapots to vases to whimsical – but incredibly useful – pie birds. This year Aspinock Spring is also featuring its own fused glass jewelry and bowls, some glowing as if lit from within. Few things are better than serving a locally-grown meal on a locally-made plate! Mon Chi Tree carries nature-inspired jewelry and home décor. Their jewelry features wood, tumbled glass, semi-precious stones and worked metals in bracelets, earrings and necklaces. Their home décor items include hand-painted beach stones, wine stoppers and other delightful items that will add a unique accent to your daily environment. To see images of some of the items Aspinock Spring Pottery and Mon Chi Tree have brought to the Market in the past, please go to the Artisan Page on the PSFM’s website: The PSFM will be holding Artisan Days again on Aug.17 and Sept. 21.
