Showcase your skills at Marketplace 2015

In the days of ancient Greece, you could head down to the market of Athens and purchase papyrus imported from Egypt, salt fish from Scythia, as well as the olive oil, figs, and wine that were ample throughout the city-states.

Reed’s own Marketplace, held from 2 to 4 p.m. on the Saturday of Reunions (June 13) in Reed’s Performing Arts Building, won’t contain any salt fish or papyrus (unless there happen to be Reedies who make those things, in which case they should email Rob at but it will have the finest things Reedies make–everything from liqueur to art to hand-knitted items and cartoons.
