Joy and Java Maker’s Market, a curated vendor market focusing on locally made goods, will set up Friday, July 22 from 4-8 p.m. in the Orrville City parking lot on Market Street.

The market started in 2020 when all of the existing local markets were canceled. Three local artisans — Abby Lloyd, Rachael Martin and Marianne Garey — had already made products to sell but had nowhere to sell them, so they decided to start their own market in the parking lot of Orrville’s Sure House Coffee. What started so small has grown in the past two years, leading the market across the street to take up the city parking lot.

On July 22 the market will feature products from many local makers including pottery, pressed flower resin jewelry, crocheted rugs, candles, leather goods, bath and body products, baked goods, pastries, macrame, clay jewelry, fresh flowers, maple syrup, honey and more. Live music and food trucks also will be at the free event, and there will be restroom facilities onsite.

Future market dates include Saturday, Nov. 19 and Saturday, Dec. 10. Details for the event can be found on Instagram @joyandjavamarket.
