The Market at the Old American Can Factory is actually from 11 to 6. Also, we are already collecting an extraordinary list of Makers for the July 12 show (And let's cross our fingers now for some nice sunny weather that day.) and would love to extend an open invitation to other makers who want to apply. Check out the updated list of makers for the next show on our website. thecanfactorymarket.org and email us directly if you'd like to apply.
