Donna's Delights is a small business which offers handmade soaps, balms, body oils, lotions, scrubs, deodorants, laundry soaps, and knitted and crocheted items. Donna is a wife, mother, and grandmother who is very active in her church. You may be surprised to hear this, but Donna's Delights is a business created and grown only during her spare time! Wow! Donna began making soap as a summer family activity while visiting her parents, and turned it into a small business. Initially she dragged her heels about making soap after she returned from visiting her parents because she knew full well that she enjoyed it enough to make it into a business (and oh, the challenges of starting a small business!).
Donna enjoys the challenge of working with natural items. She knows there are mineral colors that many soapers use to make beautiful soaps, but she's opted out of that route. It is more interesting to her to use herbs, clays, roots, and many other unusual items in her soapy creations. She thinks that naturally derived items are more fun to work with and she believes that these items offer us so many more health benefits. Donna says: "It amazes me to think that I can make something so necessary and yet so ordinary as a bar of soap." Of course, her research has proven that the soaps and products she creates are truly healthful and wonderful items. Just think... The discovery of soap has changed the world!Try to imagine where we would be if soap was never discovered...
After 8 years of working with soap, Donna has added other items to her inventory, including: Balms, Body oils, Lotions, Scrubs, Deodorant, Laundry Soap, and her various knitted and crocheted items.
This summer will mark her 8th year at the Southeast Thresher’s Reunion where she sets up in the craft barn. During this event, she not only sells her products but she also teaches and demonstrates how to make the items she sells. Come out and visit her July 1st-5th and see how it’s done! Don't miss out!

Stephen is both a vendor and the main brain behind the Corner Market operations! He provides locally and organically grown produce and herbs, and has a range of seasonal jam, jellies, and chutneys made from produce he grows or things he likes a lot (Luscious Lemon or Key Lime Curd, for example).
When you join us for a Saturday or Wednesday Market you'll certainly see Stephen smiling, greeting old and new friends, and helping others set up their tables, all while wearing his signature hat.

Faucette Farms has a rich heritage in North Carolina dating back to the early 1900s. The farm was founded as a small family tobacco farm with minimal amounts of produce. Throughout seven generations, the Faucettes have poured their love, energy and respect into the land in order to squeeze out just enough to support their families. Thanks to the hard work of loyal employees, the farm has been able to grow exponentially in comparison to its humble beginnings. Today, Faucette Farms is also able to supply produce to a multitude of families in the community and other establishments.
2008 was a year that brought unique changes to the farm. Strawberries were grown at the farm for the first time. The berries proved to be a huge success and were enjoyed by many families in the local community. Grove Winery also used them to make their muti-award winning strawberry wine. Once the weather became too warm for the strawberries, our focus changed to providing a larger variety of certified organic produce to the public.
Not only does the farm grow well known organics, such as yellow squash, they also raise special, lesser known varieties, such as spaghetti squash. Zucchini, cucumbers, sweet potatoes, pumpkins, blueberries, onions, and a variety of herbs and beans are all organically grown crops that are found in a abundance at the farm. Although the corn is not certified as organic, it is grown just like the rest of the organic produce. Along with the farm's wide variety of fruits and vegetables, country cured meats and sausage, made from the family recipe that has been handed down through the generations can be found at the farm.
Faucette Farms has been a part of the Corner Farmer's Market since the very beginning, and you can always find them offering great produce and fantastic company. They also offer CSA memberships!

Fabricated By Dena
Welcome! My name is Dena and I create functional couture for all sizes and organic okra ornaments. I design and fabricate all of the items you see by hand!
When I crochet an item, I begin with an idea and a fiber and the item creates itself through my fingers. I taught myself how to crochet when I was eight, and because I learned in a way that others might consider "backwards," I design all of my own patterns and I love to play around with color and style. This means that each creation you see is unique and one-of-a-kind!
The okra for my ornaments is organically grown by my husband and then properly treated to be a permanent and long-lasting ornament. People often purchase my ornaments for holiday decorating, but end up hanging their okra in a window throughout the year! I've been making and selling my okra ornaments for over 20 years.
Each okra has its own quirks and personality. I let the okra tell me what decoration it needs and then I hand brush the paint colors and individually glue on each bead. Each okra has layers of paint and various colors and other tiny details. It takes days for each okra to be finished!
Thank you for checking out my table, brought to you by my daughter and son-in-law at Kuska Wiñasun Homestead. You can email me for special orders or you can check out my Etsy shop for more details.

Living on the Veg Tees
Hello friends! My name is Sheri Vettel and I am the owner of Living on the Veg Tees. Living on the Veg sells veggie and other healthy food-inspired t-shirts for children and their families---I believe that wearing veggies leads to children talking about vegetables and being more willing to eat them. In fact, my son exclaims Kale Yeah! whenever this leafy green is on the menu! Overall, my hope is to get children and their families eating more vegetables, learning where their food comes from and supporting local agriculture.
A little more about me... I am a Registered Dietitian and I work for a non-profit agency, The Partnership for Community Care (P4CC) in Greensboro. For every shirt I sell, I plan to donate $1 to a healthy food pantry at P4CC, The Partnership Pantry. I helped design and implement this food pantry in 2013 in an effort to assist low-income community members in managing chronic health conditions.
I am a foodie, I promote active living (I love yoga and hula hooping) and I love the farmer's market (especially the adorable Corner Market on Elam!). If I am not dreaming up ideas for veggie tees I am usually out and about with my husband and toddler on a little adventure!
You can find Living on the Veg Tees on Facebook, at our shop website, and on Instagram! Be sure to follow us on social media for t-shirt preorders, contests and other promotions!

Michelle Peterson Art
Michelle is an amazing artist that joins us most Saturdays at the Corner! Don't be fooled by her modesty and quiet smile, she's a creative powerhouse!
Michelle is originally from Potsdam, New York. She moved to Greensboro in 2013 after she graduated from the painting program at Alfred University in upstate New York. Michelle began her creative entrepreneurship by focusing primarily on painting, but about three years ago she started experimenting with sculpture and jewelry making. Originally a side project, she fell in love with jewelry making and couldn't help but turn it into a full time occupation! She has been working as a full time artist for about a year and half.
All of Michelle's art is inspired by the beauty of nature, and each piece she creates intricately represents the magic of the natural world. Her paintings are landscape watercolors on wood, her jewelry is sculpted by hand with polymer clay and hand painted, and she also specializes in decorative clay masks. Each art piece requires many hours to complete, a keen eye for detail, and plenty of passion. Each piece also has an earthy depth that is difficult to articulate... Each piece looks as if it is from the earth, not just a representation of it! Michelle invokes all the natural layers of our earthly home in each pendant, painting, and sculpture.
You can find Michelle most Saturdays at the Corner Farmer's Market, on Etsy and Facebook, and you can find her work at Artmongerz Gallery in downtown Greensboro!
For the month of June 2016, Michelle is featured in a solo art show at Common Grounds coffee shop, which is just 2 steps away from the Corner Farmer's Market!

Tiger Lily Threads
I am Beverly, and I love, love, love fabrics, colors, fun ideas for things to make. Now, I finally have time to play and create!
My grandmother and mother got me sewing when I was 10, making doll clothes, and easy things for myself, like skirts. I sewed for myself through college, and later sewed for my two little boys, and did ambitious things like a down hunting jacket for my husband.
Then, for years, I was involved in supporting my family, and did not do much in the line of creativity...just a little stained glass and pottery, which were real adventures!
Now, retired, I am joyously playing, making simple, fun, and useful fabric items to share with you at the Corner Market. I do like it when folks suggest things that they would like, or that they have seen elsewhere and think would be a popular item.
I will look forward to seeing you and hope you'll stop by, have look at what I bring each Saturday, and introduce yourself!
