I was at this market the other month and really enjoyed it! Got some cute felt, flower earrings, a red headband and a cute, wool finger puppet for my friend who recently had a baby. Definitely some adorable crafts here, price points range but you can find some things for around $10. The market takes place in the tree-lined square (aka Ballston Circle) right across from the metro near the cosi. The market features 35 local artists and crafters who design unique pieces that are 100% handmade!
