BIZ: Makers Market grand opening Nov. 16
A grand opening for Makers Market, 513 Main St., is from 2-6 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 16. Owned by David and Teresa Carosella, the market sells original art, jewelry, textiles, and other handmade goods.
It empowers local artists and craftspeople to produce one-of-a-kind artisan valuables.
“We have 30 artists and makers under one roof,” manager and curator Jayne Mortensen said. “We are a gallery where we promote original art pieces.”
The shop also sells a variety of local foods.
“Makers can be far more than artists,” Mortensen said. “We have local honey, barbecue sauce, baked goods, canned goods, and even beef jerky.”
Makers Market launched with a soft opening in August. After speaking with the city, the shop decided to take its time planning its ribbon-cutting event.
“Since it was so doggone hot, the city encouraged us to hold off until the fall,” Mortensen said. “They told us to wait so we could do something a little bit more celebratory rather than be so hot.”
Open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. Thursday-Saturday, Makers Market plans to match its hours to coincide with downtown Marble Falls events during the Christmas holidays.
