Summer Market Days

Summer Market Days will be held at Alpaca Meadows in Ontario, Ohio on Saturday, July 30th and Sunday, July 31st, 2022 from 11am-4pm. This alpaca farm festival is the 5th annual community event of this kind at our farm. You will have the opportunity to shop with one-of-a-kind local vendors who have been invited to sell their wares at our outdoor market. Looking for something to do in Richland County? This event is free to the public and enjoyed by all who attend.

Guest Vendors

This year we’ll have vendors selling fresh produce, potted plants, succulents, weathervanes, garden art, unique handcrafted lamps, hand forged hooks, honey, beeswax items, upcycled wood creations, patch hats, graphic tees, headbands, essential oils, handmade bags, pet portraits, keto supplements, out-of-the-ordinary baked goods, maple syrup, maple sugar coated nuts, handmade chocolates, and more. Face painting and chair massage are added fun activities this year!

The Farm Store

The Farm Store will be open both days for your shopping pleasure! If you’ve never visited before, you’re in for a pleasant surprise as you enter our store and see a wide variety of items made from alpaca fiber. We have everything from Alpaca Socks to Alpaca Sweaters and lots, lots more. Our signs say “Please Touch” and we really do mean it! Alpaca is super soft and you have to feel it to believe it.

Knitters, weavers, and those that crochet will want to take home some of our Alpaca Yarn. It is a real treat for those that enjoy these crafts. We have both Needle and Wet Felting Kits trying these popular crafts at home. If you learn better in a class, we have those too. Grab a Class Schedule or sign up while you’re here!

Food and 4-H

A local 4-H club will be providing yummy food throughout the day so be sure to come hungry. The kids from this same 4-H club will be on hand to answer questions about alpacas, as they fine tune their public speaking skills! Stroll around the farm to visit with our alpacas, Angora goats, Angora rabbits, and chickens. Read our “fencepost facts” and find out more about our fiber animals.
