Makers Market‘s regular series of outdoor markets at the Mill Valley Lumber Yard returns this weekend as owner Suzy Ekman and her team are continuing to dip their toes back into outdoor, socially distanced gatherings with a “Meet the Artists” event on Saturday, September 12 from 10am-6pm.

The event features an array of local artists and makers, with whom attendees can interact and learn from. They are:

“We’ll have plenty of room to spread out to keep social distancing, and hand sanitizer,” Makers Market founder Suzy Ekman, who notes that her store also carries handcrafted goods from 100-plus more local makers. Attendees can enjoy dining at Watershed, BOL Superfood Cafe and Flour Craft Bakery while you mingle.

There will also be live music from 11am-4pm from Birches Bend and Jubilee as part of MVLY’s ongoing ‘Lunchtime at the Lumber Yard’ live music series.

“Bring the kiddos!” Ekman says. “We have paired with Once Around Art Supply Store to offer kids crafts during the market. Let the little makers create while you shop.”

HEALTH PROTOCOLS so we can socialize and shop while being safe!

The event also provides a unique opportunity to support Kiddo’s fundraising cycle, as the folks at MVLY have created a donation drive that supports #ShopMV efforts by entering anyone who makes a Kiddo! donation by Sept. 30 into a drawing to win an array of prizes.
