2022—Dancing Bee Market & Studio, 3 N Main St
Mt Vernon, is open under a new brand and with a freshly renovated classroom
space. Jami Ingledue, owner of natural soap & body products company
Dancing Bee Farms, took over ownership of the Makers’ Market in November
2021, and set out to make it into a community space where local artists could
not only sell their creations, but also share their talents with the community.
After a major renovation, the space has been hosting classes since August.
Dancing Bee Farms has been creating natural soaps and body products since
- The Market now features soaps and lotions, body butters, sugar scrubs,
products for men, and much more, but also a variety of handmade creations,
with a special emphasis on local makers and eco-friendly products. Classes
include everything from soapmaking to kids’ drawing to evening macrame
lessons with wine.
“I wanted to carry on what Kim Weitkamp started at the Makery and then the
Makers’ Market: building community,” says Ingledue. “A place where anyone
can come and sit down with other people that might be different, and build a
connection through creating together. And a place where kids and teens can
learn different mediums to create and express themselves without any
concern about grades or curriculum.”
Class schedules can be found on the website, www.dancingbeefarms.com.
Dancing Bee soaps & body products are also available on the site, including
the yearly Advent Calendar, a seasonal favorite containing 24 days of bath &
body treats, all of which can be shipped anywhere in the US. Dancing Bee
Farms has been featured on WOSU’s show Broad and High, and can be
found on instagram and facebook at #dancingbeemarket. Inquiries can be
directed to Jami Ingledue, firstname.lastname@example.org.
