St. Thomas – Horton Market Community Opportunity June 26 – Aug 28, 2021

Horton Farmers’ Market in partnership with the Railway City Arts Crawl to demonstrate ART IN ACTION as community building and an opportunity for artists to sell their works!

In years past (and Future!), The Market has been able to offer activities like Face Painting and other hands-on activities that aren’t currently part of the reopening structure. BUT we would still like to bring some more life to the Historic Downtown Market with art!

This is an opportunity to activate space at the market while CREATING ONSITE in addition to selling your works – just like with the Arts Crawl. By creating onsite while you are selling, it draws the community into an experience they can safely enjoy at a distance.

We are able to support up to two artists a week beginning June 26 through August. The market operates from 8am-12pm and artists would be expected to follow market rules and regulations. These spots will be at no cost to you – Railway City Tourism will cover the market fee on your behalf.

Available Dates: June 26, July 10, July 17, July 24, July 31, August 7, August 14, and August 28, 2021
