Known as the state’s premier art and food experience, the Indiana Artisan Marketplace features two fun-filled days in the spring to engage with artists, see their work, watch them create, taste their foods, sample their wines, and buy the best in Hoosier craftsmanship.
Hoosier makers of exceptional fine art and food have come together annually at the Indiana Artisan Marketplace since 2011.
More than 100 artisans from across Indiana are expected to showcase their original art, fine craft small-batch food, and locally produced wine, spirits and other beverages. Many will demonstrate their creative process in their booths. Food and beverage producers will offer samples up and down the food aisle
In recognition of the Solar Eclipse on April 8, 2024, artisans are creating special work to commemorate it – jewelry using sunstones, a limited batch Eclipse Whiskey, and eclipse paintings, for instance. Guests will vote for their favorite in a People’s Choice Award.
Indiana Artisans include artists – painters, woodworkers, jewelry designers, fiber and glass makers — and artisans – beekeepers, vintners and distillers, makers of specialty sauces, chocolatiers and more. The Marketplace lets collectors and first-time buyers connect with the creator of high-quality, locally handcrafted work.
