We have some important news about the location of the St. Louis Harmonious Market. This market has taken place every 2nd Sunday at the Kismet Creative Center on Cherokee Street for over a year! The time has come we must say farewell and ask anyone who would like to participate in the LAST market at Kismet to please support Kismet one last time. This will also be an opportunity to learn more about where the markets will be next and to participate in new Ripple of Existence endeavors.
Why are we changing location?
If you have not heard Kismet Creative Center, where the Harmonious Market is hosted, is permanently closing at the end of September. It is a sad time as it is my favorite place to be on Cherokee Street. Even my son, Desmond, experienced good times there. I will miss Tom and Sonia’s presence and the creative space they have shared very much. In case you are wondering, Tom will be creating an online store for his records and Sonia will continue to collaborate with the Thomas Dunn Learning Center.
What does this mean for the market?
This means that the next market on September 9th will be the LAST market at Kismet. If you have not come out to the market yet this is the last time we will be able to have the Kismet experience. So please come out on September 9th, 3-6pm to Kismet Creative Center on Cherokee Street to support them one last time before they go one to their new endeavors and us ours!
Where will the market be now?
We talked with the artisans at the August market and we agreed it would be a good idea to get a booth at the Tower Grove Farmer’s Market. If you have not been, it is a high traffic area with good vibes, great vendors, and twangy music! The Saturday Market is 8am-12:30pm until November 10th. That gives us four Saturdays to attend after September 9th. The idea is to share space where all Artisans can vend. We are even thinking about giving the option to need not be there in person to vend. We will vend your items for you!
We Need You to Contribute!
Tower Grove Farmer’s Market charges $45/week. There is a $135 deposit to secure our spot which will be applied to the last three markets of the season. All we have to do is raise the money for the deposit then we just ask if you are interested in vending to make a donation when you arrive to the markets.
- Raise $135 deposit by making a donation to our fundraiser.
- Artisan/Vendors are asked to make a donation on the day of the markets they attend.
If you are interested please make a donation of any amount.
See You at Kismet One LAST Time!
