Makers Market: A Crafter’s Showcase

May 1, 2021 in Carlsbad Village

 

The 3rd Markers Market: A Crafter’s Showcase event of 2021 will take place on Saturday May 1, 2021. The Makers Market has been a popular event in Carlsbad Village for a few years and they have now expanded due to the popularity to include multiple events during the year.

 

The Makers Market is FREE, but of course if you expect to shop and buy you’ll want to bring credit cards or cash!  

 

The Makers Market is Covid-safe, as it takes place outdoors on the campus of St. Michael’s By-the-Sea Episcopal Church located at 2775 Carlsbad Boulevard in the Village. The number of booths is limited to reduce potential exposure, and attendees will have plenty of room for social distancing.

 

Carlsbad Village signExpect that all recommended CDC and County health guidelines and protocols will be enforced for everyone (e.g., staff, vendors, volunteers and attendees), and wearing masks and social distancing are required.

 

You’ll also find a hand washing station, and stations for sanitizing hands, but consider bringing your own sanitizer, too.

 

The Makers Market Crafter's Showcase should be a terrific shopping opportunity (think Mother’s and Father’s Days, birthdays, Easter), with self-designed and handcrafted items from 40 local and regional artisans. The vendors are jury-selected, so you can expect high quality and creativity. These are all artisan-designed and hand-made, not factory-production, which means plenty of one-of-a-kind crafts.

 

As with other arts and crafts events that have taken place in Carlsbad Village, expect works of art in a range of media – leatherwork, beading, natural jewelry, 3D functional art, re-purposed materials, fabric creations, linen restoration, glass creations, candles, graphic design apparel, and more.

 

And there’s the bonus of being able to talk with the creators in person, get your questions answered, and find out what inspired them in their work!

 

There will be live music, and you’ll likely find food discounts at some of the local eateries who will be thrilled to see you – I bet you are already aware of great places to eat in our Village.

 

And if by some chance you don’t find the right gifts at the Makers Market Crafter’s Showcase, or even if you do, there are numerous retailers in Carlsbad Village just steps away to explore.

 

By the way, if you are an artisan interested in participating in one or more of these events (the next one is Saturday June 5th) you can read more and apply online here.

 

The Fall 2021 Makers Market Showcase dates have not yet been announced.

Jeff the Makers Market Crafter's Showcase sound like a good way to spend a few hours at, and do some early shopping for upcoming occasions.

Sounds like it will be a fun time, and also a bit safe being held out doors.

I get that, Thomas. I suspect others stay away from these events, too, for the same reason.

I haven't attended this particular event but have gone to other arts and crafts shows in the Village - pre-pandemic - and they are pretty impressive. It's amazing how many artisans there are and the variety of crafts.

Thanks for the gentle kick reminding me that I have been planning on doing similar blogs for Boise, Idaho.  Been too busy showing and selling, but it is still on my to-do list.

Thanks, Debe, how kind of you! I try to keep up with it all.

 

Kathy - No doubt the event will be as full as they allow it to be. And there are definitely more people out and about these days as some restrictions are removed or at least are less restrictive.
