Hobnob Harvest Market – Vintage Finds & Handmade Goods at Effingham County Fairgrounds
Hobnob Harvest Market is returning to the Effingham County Fairgrounds in Altamont, Illinois, on September 7 & 8. Known simply as “Hobnob” for short – this market has become a favorite fall tradition in the Effingham area.
Vintage goods at the market include finds like antique furniture, rusty farm primitives, cool industrial pieces, & all sorts of curiosities from the late 1800s to the 1970s. Handmade goods range from imaginative home décor & stylish jewelry to hand-poured candles, children’s accessories, and sweet treats. Several boutique clothing vendors round out the market and make it a one-stop shopping event to outfit your home and wardrobe for autumn.
Hobnob Market vendors are handpicked for their wonderful goods, creative style, & unique display talents. Browsing from space to space is like wandering along an eye-catching avenue of mini brick & mortar shops. Several unique food vendors will also be set up offering Midwestern delicacies like pulled pork, grilled pizza, & fresh-churned ice cream. Locally-owned Tuscan Hills Winery stocks wine, beer, and their signature caramel apple sangria in 2 cash bar locations and also serves from their famous wandering drink cart.
New additions to the Hobnob Harvest Market this year – a game area for kids & adults, a revamped Porter Station for large purchase pick-ups, and some tasty new food choices.
