Red Earth is a wonderful place to vend your wares. Vending is a great way to get your product and your services out into the community, and a lovely way to meet people. There are a LOT of herbal medicine makers usually in the marketplace so we encourage you to diversify this year with unique crafts, value-added products, artwork, clothing, books, etc. to get the most out of your Marketplace booth.
Vending at Red Earth has always been an exclusive opportunity for teachers and sponsors. This year we are opening the Marketplace to all attendees! Marketplace booths for attendees are $150 (teachers and sponsors please see your agreements). In addition we will have two vending opportunities: Marketplace and The Healing Village, a wellness marketplace for the healing arts.
Note: Our Cottonwood and Osha level sponsors have a marketplace booth and ticket included with their sponsorship. Others* must purchase a ticket to the event in order to have a marketplace booth!

The Alchemy of Artemis
Through the collecting of bone, petal, root, metal and leather Sheri Hupfer offers much of her medicine in the form of adornment. Sheri believes that in a time when much of our plant medicine is being misused, clear cut or over harvested, the creation of amulets and talisman, flower essences and the use of drop doses can serve to support the sustainability of our plant allies and the medicine they offer.

Karina Zedalis HEMP art + design
Original artwork, hemp goods, and Karina will be pre-selling her upcoming hemp-focused book + 2023 calendar
Uplifting the industrial hemp conversation, through mixed media, paintings, clothart dolls, and education, I am thrilled to fuse a lifetime of embodied experiences into my artwork. Living in a small cabin in the Colorado Rockies for over 21 years, during my daughter’s early school years, I helped run a startup, grassroots, contemplative elementary school in Boulder. From there, working in the landscape industry, farming hemp, and studying permaculture was a natural progression.
Selfliberation from the office came in April 2020, as my neglected studio full of collected art supplies, fabrics, and paints, demanded, "Now is the time".
I look forward to sharing my stories and art with you at KarinaZedalis.com!
