What is a Folksider?
Folksiders are artisans, craftspeople, historians, musicians, nature lovers, growers, junk collectors, culinary enthusiast….anyone with a keen eye and love for beautiful things , forgotten treasures, fine design…..they are people who live their lives with an artful and creative approach to everything they do……and an avoidance of the "been done", dull, and mundane…..
Our goal: To take our love for beautiful, interesting and sometimes forgotten things and turn it into an Art Market experience that we could share with our community. We began by gathering a core group of these creative folks and they, along with a group of selected artisans will be featured in that “art Market” venue once a month in Historical Rabbit Hash and other Northern Kentucky areas.
What are Folksiders Markets?
Monthly market events held in Rabbit Hash, KY and surrounding tri-state area river towns featuring Folksider artisans from the Greater Cincinnati/Southeast Indiana/Northern Kentucky area.
