Fall River is Getting it’s Own Open Air Market

Fall River is getting its own Open Air Market and Stephanie Enloe is the organizer behind the event.

Enloe has worked as a vendor at various markets across the SouthCoast, including the Somerset Open Air Market, also known as SOAM, for about 13 years. She recently opened a storefront to sell her handmade goods in Fall River, called Beachside Baubles & Beads.

Enloe participated in an event called “We Heart Fall River Festival” to promote the arts in the city back in May. The free, one-day, festival featured a makers market, live entertainment, and kids activities across three locations. While at the event, many guests asked Enloe when the next market would take place, giving her the idea that this should be a regularly scheduled occasion.

“People love these types of events and they are looking for ways to get out and socialize right now,” said Enloe. “I live in Fall River and I have my store here, so I’m anchored to this community. I wanted to give them something family-friendly that they can look forward to.”
