I’m a sucker for an art market. You’ve gotta support local artists, and this is one way that I know many artists make a living, by selling directly to people. There’s also the RiverCity Market and the Identity Coffee markets, too, though they are a little smaller. Here’s one that should be pretty big!
Holiday Artisan Market
Scottish Rite Center (6151 H Street)
Friday, November 29, 12 – 5 p.m.
Saturday, November 30, 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. & Sunday, December 1, 10 a.m. – 4 p.m.
Step into a world of creative wonder as you shop for meaningful gifts and one-of-a-kind treasures by 100+ regional artists! Now a Northern California holiday tradition, this three-day bazaar at Sacramento’s Scottish Rite Center (6151 H Street) delights art lovers of all ages. As children enjoy photos with Santa, adults can meet artists while browsing booths filled with juried works in glass, textiles, wood, ceramics, paper, photography, art jewelry, paintings and sculptures, all offered in a variety of price points. Proceeds from this event support participating artists, the Crocker Art Museum’s exhibitions and educational programs, and Creative Arts League of Sacramento’s arts outreach to Mustard Seed School, low-cost art tours, and variety of community programs. $8 adults, $7 students/seniors, $6 Crocker Art Museum and CALS members, free for children 12 and under. Parking at the Scottish Rite Center is free for this event.
