Handmade Market

Handmade Market

With Mother's Day around the corner, residents at The Mark may want to check out the Handmade Market at the Conti Building on Howe Avenue.

The Handmade Market is a monthly event that takes place on the first Saturday of each month and is sponsored by Celebrate Shelton. In May, the Handmade Market will be held on May 7 and will be featuring local business owners, entrepreneurs and artisans. The event will begin at 10 a.m. and will run until 3:00 p.m.

Vendors will be selling soaps, barbecue sauces, graphic t-shirts and more! There will also be live music performances during the event. The group’s website notes that entry and parking behind the Conti Building is free. Businesses, nonprofit groups and artists offering handmade goods and wish to take part in a future market may fill out a form through the group’s website.

Celebrate Shelton is an initiative that was started in 2014 by local business owners, Nicole Heriot-Mikula and Michael Skrtic. The purpose is to provide awareness for the small businesses within the community, and hosts events in the downtown area, including the Handmade Market, The Downtown Sounds: Summer Concert Series and a Community Tree Lighting during the holiday season.
