Here are 7 things you need to know to make the most of it:

1. LOTS OF VENDORS; BRING CASH

You’ll find an enormous selection of arts and crafts, as well as food. “The main attraction is on the streets in downtown Yellow Springs,” said Karen Wintrow, executive director of the Yellow Springs Chamber of Commerce. “We have a lot of returning vendors. Yellow Springs is one of their favorite places.”

Lawn art and sculptures are always popular items at the street fair. One of the returning vendors will be Heather B Leaves. “She makes beautiful concrete leaves and fountains and planters,” Wintrow said.

Some of the vendors are locals, including Twisted Tines. “They primarily make jewelry out of silverware – forks and spoons,” Wintrow said.

The Chamber is hosting 200 vendors; additional vendors will be set up on private property. Best to have cash on hand.
