The Handmade Market, April 23rd, Downtown Raleigh

 North Carolina design and craft collective, The Handmaidens, announce the 11th semiannual installment of The Handmade Market.

The Handmade Market is a one-day, indoor designer craft fair and market featuring handcrafted goods from 50 artists, designers and crafters from NC and beyond. The event runs from 11 am until 5 pm on Saturday, April 23rd.  The Handmade Market will be held at Cobblestone Hall, in downtown Raleigh.  The entrance is located at 215 Wolfe Street in City Market, just south of Moore Square, in the former Greenshields building.

Applicants were juried into The Handmade Market with a focus on local and regional artists. The participating designers represent such diverse groups of modern handcrafts including jewelry, baby and kid’s goods, men and women’s apparel, fashion accessories, home goods, fine art and stationery.

 

Sweet T Cakery and Joe Van Gogh will be available for yummy treats and coffee. Other locally owned restaurants and shops are conveniently located just steps from the front door of the show.

 

The event also includes a fundraiser to benefit Toxic Free NC. This local nonprofit’s goal is to get rid of pesticide pollution, in our water, our food and our bodies through education, governmental influence and community knowledge.  Entrance to The Handmade Market is free, but Toxic Free NC will be selling raffle tickets for various artists donated items. One hundred percent of the money raised from the raffle will go to Toxic Free NC. In the past we have raised thousands of dollars for various local charities.

 

Since its inception in 2006, The Handmade Market quickly has become one of the Southeast’s most highly anticipated shopping events. The Handmade Market is produced by The Handmaidens and is made possible with support from the Downtown Raleigh Alliance, Ornamentea, LiPi, Yelp, Carolina Fiber Fest, The B Keeps Us Honest and High Park Restaurant.
