Mystic Market: Russell

     Appalachian Folkology and Sage & Root have partnered together to bring something magical to downtown Russell. The Mystic Market, a newly launched union between the two local businesses, is a community market with small businesses, artists, healers, herbalists, and readers, all joined together for an afternoon of great food, locally crafted teas and brews, and unique shopping. 


     Mystic markets have grown in popularity throughout the years, and the two businesses are enthusiastic about offering something unique to the Russell community. 

     The Mystic Market will be held on November 5 from 11:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at Eridanus Brewing, at 501 Ferry Street in Russell. Kristen Matthews, the owner of Appalachian Folkology, will be hosting an enchanted tea party, teaching individuals who sign up for the class how to craft their tea and learn the ancient art of tea leaf reading. 

     A secondary class, Herbal Broom Making, is also available, where individuals will learn how to create a beautiful herbal broom and adorn it with trinkets and charms. Both classes are limited, and tickets are required. 

     In addition to the classes, the brewery will be open, serving up your favorite herbal teas, coffee, and craft beers. Dragonfly Cafe will also be open and on-site. 

     Eridanus Brewing’s parking lot will host the market, and vendors will be set up with a unique range of goods, from houseplants and ethically sourced crystals to hand-poured candles, custom guitars, fashion, artwork, herbs, and more. Mystical attire is welcomed.

     Last month the brewery hosted Ghouls & Goblins Night Out and sold out the venue completely. This event is also anticipated to be well attended, so purchasing tickets in advance is recommended.
