Bluegrass Creative Market

A new makers market has arrived in Lexington, Kentucky. The Bluegrass Creative Market is a pop up shop comprised of over 30 Kentucky artists and makers. It is held indoors and out at the Oleika Shriners on 326 Southland Drive right next to the Lexington Farmers Market.

The next market will take place on Sunday, September 13th from 10AM-3PM. Admission is free however a voluntary two dollar donation to the Shriners Children’s Hospital is appreciated.

Enjoy safe shopping offered by the following precautions: All vendors are required to take their temperatures within 24 hours of the event and provide hand sanitizer at their booths. Everyone entering must wear a mask and social distance. The organizers have even incorporated “dead space” in the back of each booth to allow more room between vendors and guests. One-way aisles are marked and they will monitor the indoor guest capacity.  

Make a quick stop at the registration table inside first. Depending on capacity, you may enter. If full, they will take your name and phone number to text you when it’s good to shop inside. In the interim, browse the tempting merchandise of the outdoor vendors to your heart’s content.

Lexington Podcast will be interviewing makers and you’ll want to follow them to hear more about your favorite vendors.
