Lucketts’ annual Spring Market is moving outside of the village, and even the county, this year.
Organizers announced on the Lucketts Store website last week that the decision has been made to stage the annual event at the Clarke County Fairgrounds in Berryville, May 19-21. They cited lack of space, and thus the need to turn down many interested vendors every year, and parking shortages as the decision for the move. About 18-20 acres is needed for parking alone.
The Clarke County Fairgrounds site was appealing for its ample parking, shaded tree areas, and easy access off Rt. 7, organizers said.
“I truly feel like we have made the best decision for us, our vendors, and our customers, and I’m beyond excited to show you all what amazing potential this new venue has. Soon enough we’re going to be wondering why we didn’t do this a long time ago,” the website reads.
Now in its 18th year, the three-day market attracts upwards of 8,000 visitors and features more than 200 vendors, showcasing painted furniture, vintage garden gems, architectural salvage, antiques, and more. Live music, beer gardens, food trucks, and engaging workshops round out the offerings.
