Urban Folk Circuit @ Quenchers Pub, Chicago IL - Saturday, May 21st

The Urban Folk Circuit is a simple practice:: we bring an old-fashioned awareness to a hip, urban market. We exist to support local livelihoods and reconnect mindful buyers to modern handmakers. The Urban Folk Circuit, a traveling craft market series, was initiated by two Chicago women, veterans of the independent craft community, as a means to promote fellow, local artisans and neighborhood establishments in a way that is sustainable and beneficial to both.
