In 2014, Field + Supply’s Modern Makers Craft Fair started out as a Columbus Day weekend event, bouncing from site to site from one year to the next. Now the “meticulously curated” event is initiating a “Spring MRKT” to be held over Memorial Day weekend, May 24 to 26, at Kingston’s Hutton Brickyards site on the Hudson riverfront. Billed as “a modern interpretation of a traditional arts and crafts fair,” the weekend of shopping and feasting will feature 144 artisan exhibitors from 2 to 6 p.m. on Friday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sunday.
The Hutton Brickyards are located at 200 North Street, just north of Kingston Point. Admission costs $15 for one day, $25 for both Saturday and Sunday and $35 for all three days. Children under age 12 get in free, and there will be hands-on craft activity stations for their enjoyment. Live music will include the Saints of Swing on Friday, the Slam Allen Trio and Soul Projekt on Sunday; a deejay will play on Saturday. Visit www.fieldandsupply.com to purchase tickets and find out lots more about the Spring MRKT, including a complete guide to exhibitors.
