In the spirit of reviving the art of craft, Makers Market is hosting Holiday Craft Fairs at Santana Row in San Jose, CA! On November 5th and December 3rd, the best of the Bay Area’s skilled craftspeople will join us at Santana Row for South Bay residents to enjoy. The fair features sustainably crafted jewelry, home décor, apothecary goods, confections and accessories sold by the artists.  Each month, you can meet these makers, shop their artisan-crafted work, and enjoy live music in Santana Row Park. In our store adjacent to the Park, you can shop from 100+ artists while enjoying complementary wine tasting and bites. Each month’s fair offers a fun interactive activity led by one of the artists- and in November and December a Fall Wreath Making Workshop.  This event is great news for those who enjoy giving unique gifts and celebrating with a handcrafted holiday. You can sign-up for Workshops through Eventbrite at https://www.eventbrite.com/d/ca–san-jose/makers-market/ 14519700_1241533849258584_5595179660610572961_n

“We’re excited to open this outpost in Santana Row and introduce the South Bay to these amazing makers and their intriguing stories – where they seek inspiration, where they source materials, what their passions are – and more,” explains founder Suzy Ekman.
