For this week’s market watch, all eyes are on newcomer Fenton Street Market.
While analysts study the many commodities, early recommendations are to buy, buy, buy into the wares of local artisans and vendors. Local honey, hand-braided rugs, vintage toys, and others show strong returns.
Stock futures are fueled by reports of fresh donuts, vegan goods, tea, and even dog treats at the sprawling outdoor site. With 62 vendors and tunes from local nonprofit Music on the Rise, prospective buyers marvel at the impressive and diversified portfolio.
Our expert advice: Bolster assets with a venture into the nearby FreshFarm Market, which takes place simultaneously. Get a leg up on dinner with cheese, produce, and meat from Blue Ridge Dairy, Gunpowder Bison, and Spiral Path Farm (among others).
Then go home and crash.
Fenton Street Market, Saturday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., at Fenton Street and Silver Spring Avenue, Silver Spring (fentonstreetmarket.com).
