It was a beautiful Saturday for the first in the Riverside Market and Muse series. Our riverside plazas are an ideal space for vendors and customers to enjoy a day out shopping, creating art and enjoying music. Granite Falls stores also had sidewalk sales and special Market Day sales. Tamara Isfeld conducted a free Raku pottery workshop. Attendees were able to glaze their own pottery pieces to take home. The pottery pieces were then fired using the traditional Raku style. In the afternoon, Nick Castiglione filled the air with his guitar music. He commented on what a great spot the area near the K.K. Berge building was for live music. Doug Bengston read his poetry during the music breaks. These markets are free for vendors , you can just come and set up your table. The music and art is funded by the Southwest Area Arts Council using legacy funds. The next market is June 10 featuring free theater workshops starting at 10AM and 2 PM with a Jam Session at 4 PM led by Ashley Hanson and Brian Laidlaw.
