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 the Earth Day Makers Market on Saturday, April 22nd from 9am to 4pm. This event is co-sponsored by Pedego Electric Bikes, who will have their latest eco-friendly electric bikes and golf carts on display, and EcoWater SoCal, who will happily refill your reusable water bottle with fresh drinking water!
With its new centralized location in downtown Carlsbad, the Makers Market will offer even greater access to excellent brunch, lunch and local shopping. After browsing and shopping at more than 50 vendor booths, visit one of downtown’s coffee shops, wine bars or tap rooms and enjoy your community all day.
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. 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.
Earth Day Events Downtown
Make a day of it in downtown Carlsbad! To further celebrate Earth Day, Engel & Volkers Carlsbad (located across the street from the Makers Market) will be leading a designated I Love A Clean San Diego cleanup site for the largest environmental cleanup in San Diego County called Creek to Bay.
