The Red Caboose will host the Second Saturday Market event outside of Heritage.Station

Local artisan shop, The Red Caboose, and local bakery, Nomada, will be hosting their first Second Saturday Market from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m on March 13. 

“We are having artists, vintage clothing vendors and a clothing redesigner Nomada will have their wonderful food products for sale, and we will have a few sales here at the Caboose,” Raine Klover, manager of the Red Caboose said. 

Klover said the market will be an outdoor, European-style market. 

“When you come to the Caboose, you are going to see locally produced stickers and t-shirts from four West Virginia companies. As well as many books from local authors, local food products, local bath and beauty products and a lot of original art,” Klover said. 

Klover said the Red Caboose represents about 150 local and regional artisans. 

“We are a part of the Huntington Area Convention and Visitors Bureau, so part of our job is economic development, and we are doing that through supporting local artisans and other creatives,” Klover said. 

Shawn Schulenberg, co-owner of Nomada and chair of the Political Science department at Marshall, said he is looking forward to the event after the businesses held a similar outdoor market this December that was very successful.  

“There will be a lot of great artisans at the market, including a few students like Ellen Chambers, a Marshall student who will be participating in the event,” Schulenberg said. 

He said the Nomada bakery, café and eatery specializes in making everything from scratch in-house, including local organic farm fresh eggs. 

The Red Caboose and Nomada plan to continue the market each second Saturday of the month.
