Welcome to the 2023 Barnabas Empty Bowls Onling Marketplace, where you can shop for some of this year's most beautifully hand-painted bowls. The bowls, which play a central role in Barnabas Center's annual Empty Bowls luncheon, have been lovingly created by hundreds of community volunteers.
The Marketplace also offers the works of talented local artists, including Stephen Heywood, Billie McCray, Michael Fay, Barbara Koontz, and Lis Krawiecki.
If this is your first visit to the Marketplace or if you just need a refresher, these tips may be helpful:
Purchase Tickets to the Luncheon
You can purchase tickets online at BarnabasNassu.org starting August 1 for $40 each. Net proceeds support programs that help our local neighbors in need.
