Artisan Trail To Promote Bedford's Local Businesses

Posted: Updated:
BEDFORD -

Bedford is going to be part of a statewide program to let you know where to eat, shop, and sleep when you come to visit.

The artisan trail is to help encourage visitors to go to local businesses like craft stores. They already have about 100 potential participants in it. It's something that the town is excited to be apart of but it also comes with a price.

The Artisan Center of Virginia says they estimate the two years for the trail will cost about $30,000. So far some participating businesses and private donations will cover the costs.

"It really helps us to showcase what we have and show it off to folks from outside the county and also lets people know what their neighbors are doing too," says Mitchell Bond, Goose Creek Studio.

The people involved say not only will it help bring more tourists in but it also creates a sense of community and pride for the Bedford area.
