About The Market
Four Friends Market was born late one craft night when we were looking for a place to sell our creations. Our first market was the summer of 2015. It featured 30 vendors and had way more customers than we could have ever hoped for. And it’s only grown from there, grown far beyond what we could have imagined. From the market we have enjoyed giving a platform to other local small businesses to sell their goods.
About The Four Friends
Who are the Four Friends you ask? Some may call us women. Others may say we are mothers, wives, crafters and treasure hunters. We are all those things and a box of donuts. Loyal friends we are, who band together crafting and laughing until the wee’ hours of the morning, surviving on each others company, coffee and the sugar from a dozen donuts…well, or abstaining from doughnuts, depending on who’s on whole30 at that moment. Fierce mama bears who rally together on an adventure with our fifteen children, knowing that each child is being guarded and herded and loved. Friends that have grown deeper and banded together through the curveballs of life. Willing to help out with a cup of coffee, a fresh meal for dinner, watching the kids, a shoulder to cry on and praying over one another.
That’s us….The Four Friends.
From left to right….as told by Jessica
“Mallory loves all things girly and after two boys, welcomed two girls…who will probably end up hating all things floral and sparkly. Some of her favorite things include hosting huge play dates, hunting for vintage treasures, her glue gun, wine and coffee.
Jessica is an introverted mom to four kids. You can often find her ignoring other moms at the school drop off, with a cup of coffee in one hand and a crazy large camera in the other.
Bryana is a superstar mom to four girls and one boy. Besides running around after five kids, she mentors other moms, drinks coffee by the gallon, staying up all night doing what she loves, crafting.
Brittany is a fabulous mom to two kids. She enjoys working for a cause she is passionate about, volunteering at her kid’s school, and bringing people together; after all, she gets full credit for bringing us all together! Though she doesn’t like coffee, we still love her.”
In case you tried to do the math, that is FIFTEEN KIDS between the four of us! Five of those kids have been welcomed since our first market in 2015. We certainly plan these markets with a kid on our hips and a few at our feet. Our aim is always for our markets to be a family affair, where children are always welcome and enjoy themselves.
