Many many thanks to all of you who came, contributed to the Raleigh City Farm fundraiser, and shopped from the great artists at yesterday’s event. We had a lot of support for this event, from our wonderful volunteers to our generous sponsors. An extra thank you goes out to the fine folks at Ornamentea, City Market, Ablutions, Anvil, Epona & Oak, Carolina Fiber Fest, Kung Fu Nation, Rebus Works, Downtown Raleigh Alliance, and The High Park.
A special shout out to everyone at Progressive Graphics on Hillsborough Street. They really came through with a critical last-minute need. Thank you!

Love + craftiness always,
It’s here! Join us in downtown Raleigh for The Handmade Market at Cobblestone Hall. Doors open at 11am, and we’ll have more than 50 artists, crafters, and designers showing off their wonderful, handcrafted wares until 5pm. Be one of the first 500 guests and you’ll receive a free tote bag for all of your goodies!
Admission to The Handmade Market is free, as always. In lieu of an entry fee, please consider making a donation (cash or canned goods) to the Raleigh City Farm. Your donation will get you a raffle ticket good for a chance to win a gift basket full of good things from our generous Charity Sponsors.
Hope to see you there!
Just one more day ’til The Handmade Market! Join us tomorrow from 11 am to 5pm at Cobblestone Hall in downtown Raleigh’s City Market for a fun, fantastic day of shopping with over 50 independent artists, designers, and crafters. It’s the perfect place to shop for all of the moms and grads in your life, and the first 500 shoppers to arrive will get free goody bags.
As always, admission to The Handmade Market is free. Instead, we ask you to consider making a donation to the featured charity, the Raleigh City Farm. Your donation will get you a raffle ticket good for a chance to win a gift basket full of goodies from our awesome Charity Sponsors. Stephen from Stephen’s Twisted Inspirations will be there to make amazing balloon creations to entertain and inspire the kiddos and the grown ups.
We’ll also have homemade treats and coffee from Sweet T, Sympathy for the Deli, and Joe Van Loco. So come on down to Cobblestone Hall for The Handmade Market tomorrow from 11am to 5pm!
As you’re making plans for The Handmade Market this weekend, we thought it might be helpful to have a little info on traveling to and parking at the event.
It’s probably best to approach The Handmade Market at Cobblestone Hall from Blount Street (one-way southbound) or South Wilmington Street (one-way northbound) and park in the City Center Deck, which is free on the weekends. As far as we know, there are no street closures in the immediate area on May 12 (but close by, the 100 block of E South Street between Wilmington and Blount Streets will be closed from 9am until 6pm for Shaw University’s graduation). For last minute updates on street closures or events, please check with the Downtown Raleigh Alliance.
One last tip — please bring cash to The Handmade Market. Lots of artists accept credit cards, but not all. There is an ATM right in City Market, near the corner of Hargett and Blake Streets.
