Taste handcrafted products and stock up on small-batch goodies at prices much lower than offered at retail shops. Choose from among handcrafted jams, mustards, salsas, vinegars, mead, honey, soaps, tinctures, and more. At 1pm and 3pm on both days, Institute of Urban Homesteading founder Ruby Blume offers short talks. Come learn about moving to the country, soil health, bees, and food preservation. The event takes place in a charming 1912 craftsman home. Kid friendly, but please leave dogs at home or in the car. Questions? Email Ruby at iuh(at)sparkybeegirl.com. Info: here or facebook
