ENCINITAS Holiday MAKERS MARKET
Sunday, December 10, 2017
11am to 4pm
Encinitas Community Park
Plan your holiday shopping at our upcoming market and not only will you be supporting local artists and artisans, but your purchases will help worthy causes. Our market this year will be a Gather for Good event. All of our makers will be donating a portion of their sales to a charity or non-profit that is working to make the world a better place.
The Encinitas Makers Market is FREE to attend so come enjoy and support our local creative community. There will be over 50 amazing local artists and artisans, live music, henna tattoos, and face painting. There is plenty of free parking at the beautiful Encinitas Community Park, which is located behind the Von’s shopping center just off the 5 freeway at 425 Santa Fe Dr.
Connect with Local Artisans
There is something special about meeting the person whose hands made something you use or look at every day. There is a sense of connection in knowing exactly where and how it was made, as well as the maker’s story behind it. There is a whisper of how things used to be. When skills learned with labor and love were passed down through generations of artisans to bring high quality goods to market.
This connection used to be commonplace in communities but has grown distant with the rise of imported and mass produced consumer goods. By consciously choosing locally produced and handmade goods instead of foreign and factory produced items, you will help keep American craftsmanship alive, as well as support our local economy.
At the Market you will be able to meet local makers, find out what inspires them, where they source their materials, hear the story behind their creations, and purchase their wares. We hope to encourage a thriving local community of artists and makers by providing a fun, regular, and affordable way to showcase and sell their handmade products to the community. You will find everything from jewelry and art, to furniture, candles, and soap!
