Makers Market is June 4, 2022
The 3rd of 4 Makers Markets for 2022 takes place Saturday June 4 from 9 am until 4 pm., once again hosted by the Carlsbad Village Association. This is the 6th year for the Carlsbad Village Makers Markets with multiple events each year.
As in the past, the Carlsbad Village Makers Market will be held on the campus of St. Michael’s By-the-Sea Episcopal Church. St. Michael’s Church is at 2775 Carlsbad Boulevard just south of McGee Park.
Attendance is free, and 50 or so artisans will showcase their creations. Don’t forget those credit cards and/or plenty of cash for shopping!
The Makers Market Crafter’s Showcase is a wonderful shopping opportunity, with self-designed and handcrafted items from local and regional artisans. With Father’s Day coming soon, birthdays, and perhaps weddings, you probably have multiple gift-buying needs to meet. Or maybe something for yourself!
If you have been before you might notice some of the same vendors from previous Makers Markets, as well as some new ones. Because vendors are jury-selected, their creations are high quality, creative, and unique.
Artisans create their works in a broad range of media. You should expect include leatherwork, woodworking, beading, natural jewelry, 3D functional art, re-purposed and vintage materials, fabric and glass creations, candles, graphic design apparel, and more. And there will be some artisanal sweets, too!
Part of the fun is the ability to talk with the creators, ask questions, and learn about their inspiration for what they’ve created!
The Carlsbad Village Makers Market is sponsored by Beach Vibe Rentals, a golf-cart and e-bike rental company, located between St. Michael’s and McGee Park. You’ll want to stop by their booth to learn more about them.
4 local musicians will play music throughout the day.
And there are lots of local eateries close by if you get hungry from your shopping.
There are plenty of retailers in Carlsbad Village nearby to visit if you don’t find the right gift at the Makers Market! Or even if you do.
Since our beautiful beaches are just a couple of blocks away why not enjoy a visit before or after the fair?
