About Our Exhibitors

Village Peddler Festival at Lake Metroparks Farmpark in Kirtland Ohio September

For 38 years we have been curating an evolving collection of exhibitors from Ohio, Pennsylvania, West Virginia, Michigan, and New York. 

We jury our vendors for quality work and uniqueness of design.  Some of our vendors have been exhibiting with us for more than 25 years; others are brand new.  Every year we present a unique mix of more than 175 artisans & craftsmen in a truly American Marketplace. 


Village Peddler Festival has been supporting the "Maker Movement" since 1982.
