Nobody likes a rainy day during the summer, but unfortunately – it happens.
Instead of having your kids, dogs and other family members dirty your floors, head over to The Tannery Marketplace and dirty their floors! The Tannery Marketplace, located at 50 Water Street, has a plethora of rainy day activities for kids of all ages.
Pottery Isle – You and your kids can express your artistic talents! Pick out your own piece of pottery and decorate it to create a unique gift. Sure to be a keepsake for years to come. No appointment necessary. *accepts Newburyport Gift Card
