The team sees deep opportunity in using existing outbuildings on the property as an artisan marketplace to drive traffic, generate community interest and benefit area artisanal businesses throughout the year. A marketplace is complimentary to education uses, as it offers vendors a platform to educate the community about their processes and showcase the various trades, crafts and skills that they use to contribute to the local economy.
