Makers Market is back in 2023!

Now in its 7th year, the Carlsbad Village Association (CVA) Makers Market blends artisan craftsmanship, live music, and community in the heart of Carlsbad Village.

In support of our local artisans and entrepreneurs, we are very excited to introduce our bi-annual markets for 2023 with the Earth Day Makers Market on April 22nd.

With its new centralized location in downtown Carlsbad, the Makers Market will offer greater foot traffic from nearby restaurants and businesses on the busy cross streets of Carlsbad Village Drive and Roosevelt Street. The new location is also just one block from the heart of downtown - State Street - where locals and visitors come for brunch, lunch and local shopping every Saturday.

Showcasing Creative & Artistic Makers From Southern California

Find handmade, vintage, up-cycled, and unique goods at this all juried art and handcrafted marketplace that will highlight the crafter's creativity in woodworking, leatherwork, 3D functional art, natural jewelry, beading, fabric creations, repurposed materials, artisan foods, and much more.

In addition to a new location this year, the Makers Market is also dedicating a portion of the event to our eco focused makers for the very first time in celebration of Earth Day that also falls on April 22nd. To help support and encourage eco responsible practices in all areas of commerce we invite makers to join us with eco-friendly products and practices. Here are a few examples:

  • Upcycled, recycled or reusable materials
  • Sustainable practices that promote earth friendly packaging and/or reduced waste efforts
  • Zero plastic in packaging or booth products
  • Products that promote the use of sustainable agriculture or farming
  • Products that have an "earth focused" give back to the planet via donation or giving program

Makers who offer an eco-friendly product or practice will be identified with a placard on their booth to help like-minded patrons find them easier.

There will be many activities scheduled around this market that will help identify this event as not only the Markers Market everyone has come to know and love, but also one with a new, forward-thinking model.
