Attendees crowded under vendor tents, admiring creations by local artists as a DJ played live music at the Carrboro Town Commons for The Bazaar Craft and Art Market on Sunday.
This September marks the Bazaar’s ninth anniversary.
This year approximately 40 vendors participated in Sunday’s Bazaar, including Carrboro Coffee Roasters, Craftboro Brewing Depot and Sparkle Body Arts.
While attendees shopped, they could grab a bite to eat at three food trucks on-site — Safari Eatz, for Kenyan street food; No-Bull Streetacos, for authentic Mexican food; and Vegan Ice Cream Man.
Meg Morgan and her husband Duncan are the event's organizers. They like to welcome diverse vendors to the market.
“I’m so blown away by the diversity that we have at the market and just the talent,” Meg Morgan said.
Many of the Bazaar’s vendors return yearly, which Duncan Morgan partly attributes to the event’s organization and clear instructions.
“The feedback we want is from our vendors, and we consistently hear from them that the Bazaar is one of their favorite events that they go to, and some of them do many, many events,” he said.
When the Morgans started the Bazaar, it was important to them that the market was an accessible place for artists to begin showcasing their work and grow in their craft.
