Pop Up Market spotlights local entrepreneurship and artistry

Local artists and entrepreneurs were given the opportunity to offer their creations to the public at the Summer Pop Up Market on Saturday, June 25. 

The event was hosted by Chattahoochee Main Street at their office in downtown Chattahoochee, where tables were set up in a cool indoor environment away from the midday heat.

Shoppers browsed a range of goods, from a large selection of preserves right at the entrance to a beautiful variety of handcrafted wreaths by Judy Williams of Chattahoochee Georgia Peach.

Andrea Goldfarb of AndiMeg Makes offered colorful and lightweight polymer clay jewelry for sale at her table, and Janice McPhaul of Butterfly Kisses Boutique displayed handmade mugs, tumblers, and keychains.

Rich and Pour set up shop as well, offering coffee, espressos, lattes, and muffins.

A couple of local artists also set up pavilions in nearby Heritage Park to showcase a selection of their work, along with a Champs Italian Ice truck to help beat the heat.

“Our goal for this event,” says Pam Medley, president of the board for Chattahoochee Main Street, “is to be able to promote downtown and also promote these crafters, these makers, and mesh that with our downtown retail businesses, because they are open this morning as well. I think it’s a good collaboration.”
