FLEMINGTON, NJ – Marketspace Vendor Events and Lone Eagle Brewing reunite for a “Crafts and Drafts” handmade craft market in support of New Jersey artists.
Their second event at the craft beer brewery - and first of three this year - will be held at the brewery located at 44 Stangl Rd. on March 31 from noon to 5 p.m.
The pilot pop-up at Lone Eagle Brewing in November yielded a strong turnout and positive reception from the local community.
“We really like how Marketspace’s Crafts and Drafts events bring our core craft brewery consumers together with vendors who produce beer-centric crafts,” said brewery owner Todd Becker. Sixteen craft artisans and four food trucks unknowingly sparked an ongoing partnership between Marketspace and Becker.
The Marketspace network of vendors has grown to more than 1,100 in just six months. Former crafters themselves, Founder Kim Kraemer and her husband Kevin are putting their experience – and love of craft beer – to good use bringing vendors to venues perfectly suited for handmade crafts.
“The bustling art scene in Flemington and hometown feel of the brewery really made sense to us from a Crafts and Drafts venue perspective,” Kraemer explained. “We look for spaces with an established following but draw in a new customer base with our carefully curated selection of artisans.
“We only accept handmade and vintage or repurposed wares because they evoke a feeling of authenticity which can be said about the craft brewing process as well. Our events are designed to promote small business from both sides,” she said.
Guests are invited to tour the brewery, taste the 12 beers on tap, and shop an array of treasures from hand-carved wooden kuksas to upcycled art in the open concept loft.
