The second annual Homesteading Festival being held in Williamston’s Mineral Spring Park this Saturday (Oct. 4) will feature a variety of free classes, demonstrations, music and more than 50 vendors. Festival Organizer Rebecca McKinney, said the event is a free family-friendly day with lots of fun activities. The event will go from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Vendors will offer a wide variety of products for homesteaders, farmers, gardeners, and people interested in natural and local products.
McKinney said the Palmetto Farmers Market will not be held this Thursday because the regular vendors will be at the festival on Saturday.
They will be among a variety of vendors who will offer plants, natural gardening products, soaps, lotions, salves, pet food and treats, food preparation and preservation equipment, note cards, products made from recycled and repurposed items, wool, regular farmers market products, and many other items, McKinney said.
