Alpacas of Prairie Station
Hello, Mineral Point Market go-ers!  We are busy processing this year's alpaca fleeces and are finally getting to the market!  We have items that are great to purchase, even in the summertime, such as purses and accessories, yarn to plan an autumn project around and, for all you crafters out there, we are cleaning and dyeing our fleeces for your creative juices.  Take advantage of lower alpaca prices to buy full, cleaned and dyed fleeces at our booth.

DDP Beads
I will be back at market this Saturday with many new, original design pieces will make their debut throughout the summer!  The Saturday morning sunshine is my business partner as it generates radiant facets which captures the attention of many a passerby.  Chatting with new customers and familiar acquaintances is always a pleasure as they gaze at the unique handcrafted  sparkling creations.  Custom pieces and minor repair services are also available.  Although I participate in a number of craft fairs throughout the year, the Market continues as a favorite as it's a local gathering place with many return customers.  See you Saturday!

Thanks, Mike

Matchbook Magnets
I will not be at the market this week, but plan on returning Saturday, July 13.  In the meantime, I will be busy making up some new magnets!  Although my dad’s vintage matchbook collection has been the incubator, I recently acquired a boxful of matchbooks and was thrilled to find it held some real gems.  I’ll be introducing them throughout the market season.  Email:  matchbookmagnets@yahoo.com  See you in July!  Cindy
Mission Abolition
Mission Abolition will not be at market this week, be back next week.  Mission Abolition creates schlep bags made from donated fabrics, which brings unique color and pattern designs to each bag.  All proceeds from the sales of these bags are donated to the Not For Sale organization, which works to end human trafficking and modern-day slavery.  Mission Abolition believes in raising awareness of the needs of people involved in human trafficking and modern-day slavery with a personal touch sewn into each bag.

Shooting Star Farm
Everyone is looking forward to a long 4th of July weekend. If you have visitors, bring them to the Market. It should be a beautiful day! We may be a little short on salad mix this week, but we'll have plenty of beautiful mini and full-sized heads of lettuce, as well as spinach. Look for lots of broccoli and sugar snap peas, too. Many of you prefer the old fashioned shelling peas to the sugar snaps, and we'll have plenty this week. Other items include beets, Swiss chard, zucchini and summer squash, kale, green cabbage, kohlrabi, mini white or purple onions, scallions, baby leeks, parsley, cilantro, basil, and rhubarb. See you Saturday! Rink, Jenny, and Charlie
Starlily Degisn
I am STARLILY  Design. I create Cuddly baby Quilties. Sewn from Flannel and backed with Fleece, I call them Quilties because they are smaller for babies and toddlers. They're colorful, soft and comforting. They are also wonderful lap blankets for older people because they're not heavy or unwieldy, they are bright, warm and cozy. Machine wash and dry, easy care. I also make Pot Holders, from bright cheerful cotton fabrics. The larger size is for bigger pans and the smaller ones work well for casserole dishes or for Coasters under your coffee cup. They are lined with a thermal batting for heat resistance. All are machine wash and dry. I've been sewing since childhood, I love color and texture, creating something useful and fun is important to me. I hope to see you at the Market in June!  Alice Raymer
The Summer Kitchen
The Summer Kitchen will be at the market Saturday.  My employee Mel Margis  will be selling jams and jellies. The Summer Kitchen has been selling jams over 40 years and doing it the old fashion way in small batches 10-12 jars at a time using fruit from the farm. I will have over 12 varieties.
