Wass Farm & Art Market, Herrera exhibit

Last Saturdays! at the Van Wert Farm & Art Market scheduled Saturday, July 29, from 10 a.m.-1 p.m., so stop by for some fresh stuff, baked goods, and food!

Van Wert Farm & Art Market hosts “Last Saturdays!” — a free, live music and food event coinciding with the farmer’s market at Wassenberg Art Center.

Live music and zany antics came from John Reichle, who has been thrilling audiences with his awesome guitar talents and spunky stories for many years. Experience at varied venues throughout Ohio, Indiana, and Michigan, the riffs coming off the strings of his guitar guaranteed toe-tapping.

Thanks to our partners and sponsors: Van Wert County Health Department, Van Wert County Hospital, the Van Wert Area Chamber of Commerce, Lee Kinstle’s GM Sales & Service, and Leland Smith Insurance.

Applications are ongoing for the Van Wert Farm & Art Market located here at the Wassenberg Art Center on Saturdays running through September 30. Growers and makers are encouraged to apply. Producers and artisans who sign up can be featured free of charge in our Farmers Market directory on the Wassenberg Art Center website.

Work by Dani Herrera made from recycled items. Exhibit begins August 12 at 1 p.m. with an opening party at Wassenberg Art Center.

Dani Herrera of Toledo will be joining us, beginning August 12, with an opening party from 1-5 p.m., to exhibit her amazing creations made out of recycled cloth, paper, and other found objects. Her pieces will be for sale and are priced very reasonably.
