The open air shopping event will showcase local artisans, artists and makers from 12-5 p.m. June 5th. The market will encompass the entire second row of the parking lot in front of Saks OFF 5th at Tanger Outlets 1 in Bluffton with over 60 vendors. The event will also feature food trucks and live entertainment.
SpringFest is organized by Lowcountry Made, a promotional organization that aims to support local artists, artisans and makers. Tanger Outlet 1 will also be the artisan market venue for FallFest October 23rd and a Christmas market Saturday December 4th.
“These markets have been vital for local makers and their small businesses to thrive. It’s hard to compete in an area with rising costs for retail space and not to mention a pandemic,” said Katie Silva, founder of Lowcountry Made. “We’re thankful for Tanger’s continued support of local, small businesses. This venue will allow for the accommodation of many new local makers for the community to discover and engage with!”
