Maker’s Market, the artisan-goods market hosted by the Stu­dents Activity Board, will return this Sat­urday, Oct. 2 from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the Chapel Plaza. 

The event will feature around 20 student and staff-run booths selling artisan items such as baked goods, crafts, jewelry, drinks. Assistant Director of Student Activ­ities Riley Arlinghaus said it is an oppor­tunity for campus to show creativity. 

“It’s a place for stu­dents to visibly showcase their talents that usually don’t fit into some of the bigger events we put on,” Arlinghaus said. 

SAB said there are several upper­classmen returning as well as a handful of freshman setting up booths.

“These people have come out mul­tiple years in a row now,” SAB Director Zane Mabry said. Another thing we are excited for is seeing a handful of freshmen set up booths this year.”

Maker’s Market has become a fall favorite, according to Mabry. 
“It’s one of those events that has become a staple on campus,” Mabry said. “It’s been recurring for several years now and it always seems to rope in new people.”
