If you’ve followed this blog for any length of time, you’ll know that I love my city and my state. I have to laugh as I think of my 15-year-old self telling my parents that as soon as I graduated I was getting the heck out of Indiana. Funny how things change! Now I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I am always looking for ways to support local businesses and artists, because they are part of what makes the Hoosier state so great.


Indiana Artisan Marketplace


The Indiana Artisan Marketplace provides the perfect way to do just that. Over 150 artisans from all over the state of Indiana will be attending and sharing their talents and stories with the community. The Marketplace offers so many different kinds of handmade Hoosier products: wine, furniture, stoneware, paintings, clothing, jewelry, photography, and even candy! There’s truly something for everyone, and it’s all handmade by Indiana artisans. The Marketplace provides an opportunity to meet all of these artisans in once place, to learn more about what they do, and to purchase some of their one-of-a-kind items.


This year, the Indiana Artisan Marketplace will be at the Indiana State Fairgrounds on Saturday, April 6th and Sunday, April 7th. The Marketplace will be open from 10:00 a.m to 6:00 p.m. on Saturday and 10:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday. Tickets are $10 for all ages and are available at the door. Younger kids may not be as excited about this event, but if your kids are older or like to shop, they will enjoy all these different Indiana Artisans (especially the ones who specialize in sweet treats). This is a really unique opportunity to sample and purchase items from Artisans located all over Indiana. Instead of having to drive across the state, you’ll find them all in one place! I highly recommend that you don’t miss this great opportunity.
