BAYarts' Thursday Market returns to evenings

Bay Village resident Valerie Koehler volunteers each year at the market.

BAYarts' Thursday Market, now in its 7th year, gets bigger and better every year. Last year, due to the restrictions related to the pandemic, and with minimal staff and available hours, the market was held during the day and proved to be a great connector for the community in difficult times. BAYarts' mission is to support local artisans and vendors and the market gave them this opportunity when many other venues were closed. This year, with many restrictions lifted, BAYarts will return to evening hours, 4-7 p.m., beginning June 10.

Many new and familiar vendors will participate including fresh produce, personal care, bakery, and handmade clothing. Food trucks will be back and the new extended patio at Chatty's Pizzeria will serve easy-to-carry fare. New this year: live music from local artists, trying something new, experimenting, getting back in the swing after a year of no gigs, a warm-up to BAYarts' summer concert series which will kick off June 20 with School of Rock. 

The market is free with plenty of on-the-grass parking. Interested vendors can join the market anytime by contacting
