The Womenfolk Market will take over Over-the-Rhine’s The Transept from 11 a.m.-4 p.m. on March 8, bringing more than 40 vendors together under one roof; ticket-buyers can browse, shop and support local ladies and their ventures.
Expect to see Greater Cincinnati favorites including Parlour, Fern, Grateful Grahams, Lucca, Coda Co., Charnee’s Doughnuts and Handzy.
In addition to shops, the event will also have a full bar and an auction with pieces from Rookwood Pottery and a large-scale work from The Diggingest Girl.
Tickets to the event cost $11 and there are four different two-hour shopping increments to choose from: 11 a.m.-1 p.m.; noon-2 p.m.; 1-3 p.m.; 2-4 p.m. There is also a $5 “Procrastinator Special” ticket where purchasers will be able to shop for the last 30 minutes of the event.
