Handmade ceramic bowls will be on sale April 6 at the Bowls in the Boro fundraiser during opening of the 2019 Statesboro Main Street Farmers Market.
The Averitt Center visual arts team, along with local artists, students and other volunteers, has been busy for weeks forming clay into bowls on the wheel, firing them in the kilns, glazing and then re-firing them. Each bowl is unique for a special, one-of-a-kind item which has a variety of uses. Bowls in the Boro is an annual fundraiser for the visual arts program of the Averitt Center for the Arts.
The bowls will be on sale for $10 and up during the first Farmers Market of the season, which is April 6 from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in Charlie Olliff Square at Synovus Bank on East Main Street. Relinda Walker, manager of the market, has arranged for many of the vendors to provide samples for each bowl purchased.
Vendors and their samples include B&G Honey (small honey jar and honey sticks), H.L. Franklin’s Healthy Honey (cream honey), Cakes by Rosie (cookie), Cork’s (kettle korn), Freeman’s Mill (grits), Jacobs Produce (strawberry shortcake), Patricia Sweetz (bunt cake), The Potting Shed (plant or herb), Sugar Magnolia Bakery (surprise), Sugar Pearl (turtle bracelet), Three Tree Coffee (jalapeno grits), WilMor Farms (flowers), 4 & 20 Bakers (chicken rigatoni), 920 Cattle (coozie or patch), Hunter Cattle (surprise) and Caribbean Feast (surprise).
Bowls in the Boro will again be on sale at the April 12 during the Downtown Relay for Life on Vine Street, which starts at 5:30 p.m. Mr. Delivery will provide McAllister’s chili to fill each bowl sold.
