The Marshall Handmade Market happens every autumn on the Saturday before Thanksgiving at Marshall High Studios in Marshall, NC. The studios are housed in a 1920's two story brick high school, which is nestled on a little island in the French Broad River. On show day the spacious, sunny auditorium is filled with some of the best makers in the region, and the resident artists open the doors of their classrooms-turned-studios to visitors. There's always a couple of Asheville's favorite food trucks, a musician or two, and plenty of seating on the generous back deck. The idyllic island setting, the charming historic high school and fantastic artists all combine to make the Marshall Handmade Market a favorite among holiday markets for locals and visitors.
