Craftwalk: many vendors, modest turnout
The E-G Farmers' Market's first-ever Craftwalk on September 26 was hugely successful from a vendor standpoint — more than 25 artists and crafters took part alongside the usual food vendors — but the turnout was quite modest despite the beautiful weather. Please remember that your support of these events organized by neighborhood volunteers really does make a difference and ensures they continue.
