Just about everything at Journeyman Distillery’s Spring Artisan Market is local and handcrafted—from the featured art, accessories, and gourmet goods, to the organic grain-to-bottle spirits that go into each cocktail.

75 hand-picked vendors will fill Journeyman's rustically refurbished event spaces for the seasonal 2-day market. Returning artisans will be joined by many participating for the first time. "We try to keep things fresh by adding new makers each season," says Journeyman Event Sales Manager, Lindsay Tschida. "Our region is home to so many talented and creative folks, we get excited about sharing our finds with the public!"

Started in 2012, Journeyman hosts markets in both Fall and Spring. Last year’s market attracted thousands of shoppers to the historic Featherbone corset factory in Three Oaks.

The 2019 Spring market will feature handmade jewelry, ceramics, wearable art, health and beauty items, photography, home decor, paper goods, gourmet food, and more. The event’s layout and scale invites interaction and conversation between makers and customers—something that both say make the experience special.

Another unique feature of Journeyman's Artisan Market is the food and drink offerings. Cocktails, as well as small plate items, can be purchased from the convenient Warren Hall bar. House-made donuts, served fresh and topped creatively are a perennial favorite. Visitors wanting to make a day of it can review purchases over a meal at Journeyman's Staymaker Restaurant, or even add on an educational distillery tour.

Founded in 2010, Journeyman Distillery crafts, bottles, sells, and serves organic and kosher certified spirits at the historic Featherbone Factory in Three Oaks, Michigan. The distillery prides itself on using the highest quality grains sourced from Midwestern organic farmers in its award-winning spirits as well as at its Staymaker restaurant. Journeyman products are distributed in eleven states across the country and available for purchase direct from the distillery. Learn more and find your spirit at www.journeymandistillery.com.
