What is the Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland?
Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland (LAMA) is all about celebrating artists. LAMA is an outdoor market where artists and crafters can gather and sell their wares. Most of the artists and craftspeople are from Southern Oregon and Northern California. Because of this, you’ll be supporting local artists when you visit the market.
The Lithia Artisans Market of Ashland was first established in 1993. That’s when the Lithia Arts Guild of Oregon formed LAMA to promote the arts in the Rogue Valley. The market is located in downtown Ashland, so you can walk around the market and explore the rest of the downtown area as well.
What kind of art is available?
At the Lithia market, you’ll discover fine art, photography, jewelry, pottery, woodwork, leather, clothing, and so much more. Each vendor makes their products by hand, so every product is unique and personal.
In addition to the art, talented local musicians play live music throughout the day, so you can relax and shop to the music.
