The Handmade Mart is an annual, juried, independent craft fair that takes place in Downtown Silver Spring, Maryland. Launched in the spring of 2009, the Handmade Mart has already become a mainstay of the local art scene with 60+ craft vendors selling handmade goods, live music, and hands-on workshops.
Created by Kimberly Dorn (Festival Director of the Crafty Bastards Arts and Crafts Fair and Executive Director of Hello Craft) and Debbie Lee (Founder of Rock n’ Romp and board member of Hello Craft), the Handmade Mart already has a buzz that has brought in top-notch independent crafters and local music favs.
The Handmade Mart takes place along Ellsworth Drive (between Georgia Ave. and Fenton St.), in the heart of the shopping & dining center of the city. With the Silver Spring Metro station close by and tons of free parking in the adjacent garage, this fair is a highly accessible for all to attend.
