Market | Sharon Springs Harvest Festival

sharons springs harvest festival 2014


This weekend we’ll be at the Harvest Festival in Sharon Springs, NY.

Sharon Springs is a beautiful and bucolic rural town in Central New York that opens its streets and businesses for this wonderful festival celebrating the harvest and small town life.

This year Etsy has become involved as a sponsor and we have been chosen to be part of the Etsy Makers Village. We can’t wait to meet the other Etsy makers and hopefully to see you all there!

The Harvest Festival runs Saturday September 20th and Sunday September 21st. The Etsy Maker Village will be located on South Street from 10am – 6pm both days. For a full schedule of events including Beekman farm tours, demos and a dance with live music entertainment check out the festival schedule over at Beekman 1802.
