Upper Lake Thursday markets kick off this week

UPPER LAKE – Summer's hot temperatures have hit Lake County, but area residents can get out and enjoy shopping in the cooler evening hours during Upper Lake's Thursday night markets.

The markets will take place from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. every Thursday beginning this week and continuing through Aug. 19, according to Debbie Hablutzel, president of the Upper Lake Community Council, which is sponsoring the weekly events.

“It is not exactly a farmers' market,” said Hablutzel. “We welcome arts, crafts, produce, plants and more – it’s just a fun thing.”

Hablutzel says event-goers will have between 10 and 20 vendors to visit. Expect the same pleasant yet festive atmosphere that recently kicked off the summer spirit during Upper Lake's Wild West Day.

Like Wild West Day, Main Street will be blocked off so shoppers can browse safely, Hablutzel said. Admission is free.

Singers and songwriters from around Lake County will have a chance to perform at the market, Hablutzel said.

The lineup of performers begins with Dave Hendricks this week, to be followed on July 22 by Lonnie Caldwell, Angelina & Ian on July 29, Stephen Holland & Friends on Aug. 5, Michael Barrish on Aug. 12 and on Aug. 19 by Hilarie, Milton & Moe.

Those interested about vendor space are encouraged to call Hablutzel at 707-275-2000 or Byron Green, a member of the Upper Lake Community Council, at 707-275-9515.
