Bedford’s Artisan Trial is up and running. The trail consists of artisan studios that are open to the public and sell directly to the public and agribusinesses that sell directly to the public, or supply other trail sites. Galleries are also included.
There are restaurants on the trail. According to Mitchell Bond, of Goose Creek Studio, the restaurants are locally owned — not a chain — and include characteristics such as being in an historic building, having live music or featuring cuisine that is traditional for this area.
