Saturday was a great day to be in downtown Syracuse. The weather held out pretty good for this time of year, a bit of an overcast, but overall a crisp fall day. The Salt Market was in town and it showcased a large array of custom crafts from various local craftsmen, artists and artisans. I think I’m supposed to say craftspersons, but auto correct doesn’t recognize that, go figure. This year the Salt Market was held on the second and third floor of the still under construction Event Space on Salina Street. Last year the market was held on S. Warren Street. Each year the event grows bigger and bigger. If you didn’t get a chance to go this year, I recommend putting it on your calendar for next year. This even provides opportunities for local crafts people to showcase their talents and provide unique gifts and purchases of one of a kind items. You’ll find jewelry, furniture, food, prints, clothing and more.
My wife and I left the market with several bags of goodies, including jewelry, a really cool modern hanging ceramic planter and some knickknacks. I even found someone to make a bench for our entry foyer, something I’ve been looking to do for a while. Other than the Mall, this is a very cool place where you’ll find some really cool stuff you can’t find anywhere else.
