On the heels of the success of last year’s night markets, Hankin Group and Growing Roots Partners are coming together for another year of seasonal markets in Eagleview Town Center. This year’s first installment of Craft & Mercantile will be held on Friday, May 20 from 5-8 PM.
Last year’s event attracted more than 1,000 people for an evening of shopping, food and drink, and live entertainment. The free event will return on the third Friday of the months of May, June, October, and November with some new and returning artisans, along with local food and drink, rotating musicians, and kids activities.
“We are thrilled to be hosting Craft & Mercantile again in Eagleview Town Center,” said Holly Stewart, Brand Manager for Hankin Group. “After the success it brought to both Eagleview and Weatherstone town centers last year, we knew we had to bring it back for the 2022 event season. We are so excited to share the event with the community again this year and are looking forward to the charming night markets for shopping, dining, music, and more!”
At the 2022 debut market this month, Craft & Mercantile will feature a lineup of over 30 hand-selected local artisans and makers alongside Revivalist Spirits and two local breweries.
The Cheddar Boys, a rhythmic folk band from Philadelphia, return to the Eagleview stage for a live performance during the market. Growing Roots Partners will also host cookie decorating and watercolor painting for kids ages 12 and under.
“Growing Roots is so looking forward to bringing Craft & Mercantile back to Eagleview Town Center this year,” said event organizer Christy Campli, owner of Growing Roots Partners. “The support from the community during our inaugural year in 2021 was incredible, and we can’t wait to return the magic of our night markets to the tree grove this upcoming season.”
More information will be released here and on the Eagleview Town Center and Craft & Mercantile social media pages. Later this summer, Eagleview will continue its Summer Concert Series, a long-standing tradition coordinated alongside Point Entertainment, and monthly Movie Nights.
