This month, more than 2,000 are expected at Red Potato’s biggest and best Market Days to date. Red Potato Market celebrates it’s second anniversary and 5th event in the Big Red Barn. “We have something for everyone,” says Laurie Cuthbertson, co-owner of Red Potato Market. “We’ve selected over 70 vendors from our area and areas as far away as Louisiana and Virginia. You’ll find antiques, vintage home furnishings, art, photography, crafts, lighting, glass, pottery, iron, lawn and garden items, vintage linens and clothing, fresh produce, beef, cheese, eggs and more!”
And the theme of this October’s Market Days? Repurpose…because that’s what the ladies of Red Potato Market have done with the Event Center. Owner Debra Sabrsula says, “I grew with this barn—the Jim Reno barn. The late Jim Reno was a noted sculptor of western subjects and a legend in the cutting horse industry. This barn was his arena. The barn has amazing memories, and instead of tearing it down, we painted it red and repurposed it. Not just for Market Days, but as a charming and distinctive special events facility the entire community can enjoy. We’ve added a cement floor, restrooms and kitchen to the 15,000 sq ft barn, making it the perfect location for all sorts of events, including weddings, family reunions, corporate and private parties. Stop by Market Days and check it out!”

Judging will be by local celebrities, we’ll have cool prizes, and we’ll display all entries during Market Days…we can even sell your item if you wish. Check our website for complete details.”
