EDGEWATER — Helix Education is hosting a community artist market this weekend.

The Helix Artist Market will take place 10 a.m.-3 p.m. Saturday at its headquarters at 6237 N. Clark St. The outdoor event will be weather permitting.

The sidewalk sale will feature local vendors selling vintage clothes, art, candles, cookies and more. An emphasis has been placed on hosting local and underrepresented artists and vendors, said Caitlin Botsios, co-founder of Helix.

There will also be performances and entertainment. For more on the market, click here.

Helix’s market will coincide with Renegade Craft Fair’s long-awaited debut in Andersonville, taking place along Clark Street this weekend.

Helix’s artist market is the debut of new community programming for the organization.

Helix was founded as a non-profit cafe that held educational programing and classes for local students. Early this year, the organization shuttered its daily cafe to focus more on its educational services, including a 10-week college and career program for local high school kids.
