    Charm at the Farm aims to be more than just a market, they want to offer an experience for customers and vendors alike. Located on a formerly award-winning 56-acre Clydesdale horse farm, Charm at the Farm is a vintage market that will be hosting its first in-person event August 21-23. 

    Jayme Kuenkel, co-owner of Charm at the Farm says the event features unique, vintage, handmade and repurposed furniture, home decor, gifts, and more in a picturesque, open-air farm setting.

    Charm at the Farm is typically held three weekends per year in June, August, and October, however, the June event was held online due to COVID-19. 

    “We are so excited to open the farm gates for August,” says Kuenkel. “We have been working closely with the Warren County Health Department and are implementing several new health and safety guidelines in alignment with the state’s recent mask-wearing mandate for Ohioians.”

    Kuenkel says this event, presented by Blume and Fleurish, features vintage pieces, clothing, furniture, and home decor from more than 115 talented artisans and shops, and 25 of those are attending Charm at the Farm for the first time.

    This Augusts’ Charm at the Farm event is offering a few firsts for guests, including an “early bird” admission ticket option for Saturday morning only. This gives guests the chance to shop early and also encourages staggered entry for social distancing. 

    “There will only be a limited number of both Saturday early bird and Friday night VIP tickets available, so snatch them up quickly if you want them,” adds Kuenkel. 

    VIP and early bird tickets include complimentary re-entry for the entire weekend. 

    Other new things coming to this market include an expanded variety of food trucks serving everything from coffee, tacos, BBQ, pizza, kettle corn, and more.

    All tickets for Charm at the Farm must be purchased online in advance only for this year’s markets as the team works to maintain social distancing and other health and safety guidelines. 

    Friday night VIP tickets for Charm at the FArm are $15, Saturday early bird tickets are $10, and general admission tickets are $5. Parking at the market is free.
