Art, handmade, small batch and unique makers markets
The Fort Collins Creative District is filled with crafters, makers, home based businesses and artists, thankfully we have lots of Fort Collins makers markets springing up year round to showcase their creations. Everything you could imagine can be found at the artisan and arts markets hosted throughout the community at local breweries, community centers, and by downtown shops. They are set up as large holiday markets, small intimate markers markets and most are free to attend. You can find handmade leather and wood items, silver and beaded jewelry, ceramics and glass, handcrafted gifts, and unique Fort Collins art all while you shop local and treat for yourself! Here’s a list to help you start to explore the Fort Collins craft markets.
