Lovers of the fall season, or at least the fall season aesthetic, attended Mount Sterling’s 6th Annual Street Market on Sept. 24. Hosted by the Market Crew, the event featured more than 25 vendors who sold everything from home décor and baked goods to bewitching clothing and accessories.

Tamara Wallace entices the crowd at the Mount Sterling Street Market pumpkin doughnut from Lindsey’s Bakery. Wallace said these sweet treats from the Circleville-based bakery are a big hit at autumn festivals, so much so that they are sold by the dozens and sell out within minutes. “I had to buy a few myself before they were all snapped up,” she quipped.
Ardelle Noggle rearranges her sweater pumpkins. The Dublin resident, who grew up in Mount Sterling, began making pumpkins, gourds, and other crafts out of repurposed fabric and materials three years ago. She said she can churn out a sweater pumpkin in 15 minutes, but it takes her longer to complete the Mod Podge pumpkins that are made out of decoupaging paper.
Bringing a bit of greenery to the street scene was Grove City resident Liberty Brigner. Originally from Mount Sterling, Brigner established the Whimsey Ridge Plant Co. over a year ago to bring her love of plants to the masses. She said she propagates a variety of types in her basement.

Mount Sterling resident Fred Jacobs relaxes in his 1934 two-door Ford Sedan at the Street Market car show. Jacobs said he has been looking for this vehicle, especially painted in this brandywine color, for more than three decades. “I finally found it about six years ago, and I love everything about it,” he stated. The car show, the first hosted at the Street Market, attracted more than 50 entries.
