In an effort to celebrate our Southern California community of artists, crafters, makers, skilled laborers etc., we are honored to host the first annual Maker’s Market. Join us outside in the garden to explore handmade goods, everything from hand woven baskets, clothing made with natural dyes, handmade furniture, local art, handmade herbal soaps and more. 

Maker’s Market celebrates goods that are functional, well designed and handmade by our local community. Choose to buy locally produced and handmade goods, rather than factory made. When we do so, we keep our money and skills inside our community to strengthen and grow our economy while supporting talented, skilled and artistic individuals.

Join us Saturday, November 8th, 2014, to celebrate local and handmade goods, and the individuals who make them.
