Rosetta Star, owner of Rosetta’s Kitchen on Lexington Avenue, announced today that she has organized the Asheville People’s Market, “a flea-market style place to buy art, crafts, and homemade items from Asheville artists as well as bartering for and haggling over for yard sale items, lost treasures, and other peoples un-loved functionals.”
The market will be open from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. every Sunday from June to October in the parking lot across the street from Rosetta’s (93 N. Lexington Ave.).
Vendor spaces will rent for $10, Star said in the online announcement. She emphasized how the market will serve as a “place for spending a social Sunday shopping outside of the typical consumer loop,” adding: “So bring the kids, the old folk, a sun hat, a few bucks, and come on down to see what treasure you might dig up and what necessities you can skip at the big box stores! Keep it local, Keep it real!”
