Green Bluff Grange seeks Craft Faire vendors

The Green Bluff Grange, which has been active since 1909, is bringing back a way to be involved in the annual Harvest Festival that Greenbluff fruit growers host every fall.

The Grange used to host a Craft Faire each fall, but the fair has been on hiatus for the past few years.

This year, the Craft Faire is back and the Grange is looking for vendors who want to participate in the fair during the first three weekends in October. Vendors can choose to participate on all three weekends, just one weekend, or two weekends. There will be 15 8-by-8-foot indoor spots available and 15 outdoor 10-by-10-foot spots each weekend.

The cost is $50 per vendor booth per weekend. Tables are available to rent for an additional $10 per weekend.

The link to register for a vendor booth is available on the Grange’s Facebook page.

The Grange is located at 9809 E. Greenbluff Road, next to Beck’s Harvest House. To see a directory of fruit growers and to get more information on Harvest Festival activities and u-pick and prepicked fruit, visit
