The Autumn Market is one of four quarterly markets held at the SWVA Cultural Center & Marketplace (formerly Heartwood). The day will feature regionally crafted gifts and fun for the whole family. In addition to shopping, you can also help to support one of the SWVA Cultural Center & Marketplace’s very own. Profits from the day will benefit long-time employee Leigh Campbell, a SWVA Marketplace Associate and librarian. Please come out in support of Leigh, who recently was diagnosed with breast cancer. Leigh is a Washington County native and spends her day telling SWVA visitors and locals about our amazing artisans and 19 county region.
