If you are in town on the first Sunday of the month anytime between November and May – be sure to check out the Key West Artisan Market. There are more than 50 vendors selected to participate at these markets. The vendors vary from artists, authors, food vendors and anyone who truly exhibits the uniqueness of Key West and the Lower Keys.
The Key West Artisan Market is held in the parking lot of The Restaurant Store and Cole’s Peace Bakery at 1111 Eaton Street. Parking is very limited so plan to either bike or walk over. The Market is open on the First Sunday from 10 am to 2pm.
You will enjoy meeting these great artists and plan to pick up a few items to take home. Spend some time wandering from vendor to vendor and take in the food, sights and sounds of this really great outdoor market.
We have picked up a few of our favorite items from the artists at the market. One of our favorites is Melanie S. Griffith. Her art is inspired by her time spent in South America and parts of Europe. Stop by her booth say “hi”.
We also met a relative new comer to Key West, Carol Motta (The Glass Lady). She sells great pieces of glass art here and at Mallory Square. She has many interesting and unique pieces.
The Key West Artisan Market is a great way to spend a lazy Sunday morning taking in all that truly is unique about this great place.
