Artisan market returns to Washington Crossing Historic Park


Area residents looking for one-of-a-kind artisan gifts for themselves or others can check out McConkey’s Market from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday, June 15 in Washington Crossing Historic Park (PA).

McConkey’s Market attracts thousands of shoppers to its eclectic mix of nearly 100 vendors who sell artisan crafts, up-cycled items, handmade jewelry, original art and photography, pottery, vintage clothing, reclaimed furniture, and collectibles. The market also features live music and several food vendors.

Hunterdon County Rug Artisans Guild members will demonstrate the art of traditional rug hooking at the market. Try your hand at this 19th century American craft and view samples on display.

McConkey’s Market takes its name from the park’s McConkey Ferry Inn, parts of which date back to 1750. The building represents a typical country inn or tavern of the Revolutionary era.

Admission to the market is free, and it will be held rain or shine. For information, visit
