Last weeks market

Last weeks market – First of the year

It has begun….another great year of the Vantage Point Farmer’s Market.

At the first market there were new faces and old friends…many vendors are returning this year to offer their wares and what a wide selection available this year.

In the past there were 2 markets offered…the Farmer’s Market on Saturdays and the Arts and Crafts Fair on Sundays. This year the two are combined to offer a one day a week event that provides shoppers the convenience of a one day shopping trip with the variety of both markets.

Saturday, May 18, the Port Huron Cash Mob group has chosen the market as the site for this week’s Mob event. Not sure what a cash mob is? It is a way for local residents and visitors alike to offer support to local area businesses. What better way to support our area than stopping down to Vantage Point Farmer’s Market and purchasing you spring planting necessities, some new garden or lawn art, a delicious bacon topped cupcake (really! they are wonderful!), or maybe a new picture to hang on your wall at home.

Vantage Point Farmer’s Market, located next to the mouth of the Black River, is a wonderful place to spend any Saturday, but Cash Mob Saturday, May 18, may prove to be the most fun you will have shopping this month!first day at R n R market 006 first day at R n R market 009

New Exhibit at Studio 1219

Bill Tucker: A Realist's Retrospective

Earlier this month a new exhibit, entitled “Bill Tucker: A Realist’s Retrospective”, opened at Studio 1219 in downtown Port Huron. Bill Tucker is a Port Huron native who attended the Center for Creative Arts and Wayne State University in Detroit with the aid of scholarships; and also attended the Chicago Institute for Interior Design. He then spent years in the commercial art field honing his talents and his skills as a pictorial artist.

Landscapes

The exhibit opened on March 9 and will remain on display until April 7. For all who enjoy great artwork it is a must see.  There’s something for almost everyone; from fantasy to portraits, and landscapes to animals the beauty of Mr. Tucker’s work is awe-inspiring at the least.

Animals

Fantasy!

Try to make time to got to Studio 1219 and support a Port Huron business and a Port Huron artist.  Hope to see you there.
