If you’ve been attending the Stonington Farmers Market this season on Friday mornings from 10AM to Noon you might be wondering where some of your favorite vendors are. Jorge Castaneda of JC Turnings has been busily rebuilding his studio and turning out new bowls. He will be showing again at our market starting June 12th. Jorge’s campaign to fund his new studio was a success. Now the 81 year old artisan is catching up to fill the orders generated by donation perks!

Frendor in Need

Frendor to the Stonington Farmers Market Jorge Castaneda of JC Turnings is trying to raise $10,000 via Indiegogo crowdsourcing to replace his wood turning studio. The winter has been very harsh this year and the studio roof was overburdened with snow. Luckily, the 81 year old master wood craftsman was not injured in the collapse. Please click this link if you can make a donation in any amount to help him out. Thank you!
