This Saturday’s Three Notch Market Arts and Crafts Festival, planned for the grounds of historic Springdale, features a variety of vendors and musical entertainment.

The Andalusia Junior Woman’s Club sponsors the event, now in its second year.

Arts and crafts vendors will show handmade jewelry, woodwork, quilts, folk art, birdhouses, paintings, photography, hair bows, children’s clothes, plants and pottery. A caricature artist will be on hand for drawings on demand.

Food vendors will have baked goods, hot dogs, fried fish, and other festival favorites.

Harper is an Andalusia native and AHS grad who has taken her original and cover music to the Gulf Coast, and who has performed at Montgomery’s Jubilee City Fest, and Mobile’s Bayfest.
