Midwinter Makers Marketplace

at JCBA's Satellite Studios located at FAU's historic T6 building
Sunday December 15, 2019
10 AM to 4 PM

Free Admission! Free easy parking! Come celebrate the seasonal and the handmade at our Midwinter Makers Marketplace, where we will be gathering makers of all kinds at one central location so you can shop, make connections, and be generally inspired (a constant JCBA theme). This market is focused on holiday artisan shopping with the Shop Small movement at the forefront. There’ll be festive doughnuts, live music with some of our favorite local musicians, an apple sale, a new tag sale venue, plus crafts you can make (because we should all be makers).


Interested in showing your work at the Harvest Makers Marketplace? We curate each market and we are always on the lookout for new and interesting makers to complement our longtime favorite makers. We’re looking for local makers, local artisans, and interesting creative boutiques. Our emphasis is always on authenticity, fair trade practices, and the handmade. Email JCBA Director John Cutrone at <jcutrone@fau.edu> for complete details. There is no entry fee for shoppers and we offer free parking, live music and other activities to entice shoppers, directional signing specific to the Marketplace on all main campus roads, printed postcards, and extensive publicity through JCBA's email news and social networking. Table fees for this market are $35 per table, which we supply (along with seating), or $40 per outdoor tent, which you supply (we’ll still supply free tables and seating for your tents). Tables are 5 feet wide. Tent spaces are up to 12 feet x 12 feet.

Our new Tag Sale area is for folks who may not be makers, but are looking for a festive yard sale venue. The Tag Sale takes place in the grassy areas at the west entrance of T6. Tables are standard folding tables and are $10 for one, $15 for two (which will be arranged in an L). We supply the folding tables and chairs, you supply your own sun umbrella or tent. The Tag Sale takes place weather-permitting and we collect your table fees day of show. The Tag Sale is strictly for sales of a yard sale sort; no new merchandise allowed in this area.

The easiest way to find our venue is to keep your eyes open for the blue and white MAKERS MARKETPLACE signs we’ll have posted on campus roads directing you to the market. Historic T6 and its neighboring companion Building T5 are remnants from the World War II era Boca Raton Army Airfield. The two buildings are easily spotted as they look nothing like the rest of our campus buildings. They both resemble old army barracks buildings with tall brick chimneys rising from the center of each. They are located on FAU's Boca Raton campus, at the northeast corner, very close to Henderson School and the FAU Football Stadium and directly across the street from the east entrance of Palm Beach State College. The easy to spot directional road signs are placed strategically on main campus roads to guide shoppers to our venue and to free, close-by parking.

From the I-95 interchange and Spanish River Boulevard: Exit 48A takes you directly from the interstate to FAU. Once you pass the traffic light at Spanish River Boulevard, you are on the FAU campus on FAU Boulevard. Keep to the left lane and you will see a blue and white MAKERS MARKETPLACE sign directing you to make a soft left onto NW 8th Avenue. Our venue at historic Building T6 will come up soon after. Should you miss the soft left onto NW 8th Avenue, stay on FAU Boulevard; you will soon see a field on your right and then FAU Stadium. Stay in the left lane, and you’ll see another blue and white MAKERS MARKETPLACE sign directing you to turn left at Palm Beach State College Drive. Turn left again at NW 8th Avenue. Our venue at historic Building T6 will be on the right.

From Glades Road: Enter the FAU campus at the main entrance (the one closest to I-95) and you will find yourself on West University Drive. Continue straight. The road will curve eventually and become North University Drive and FAU Stadium will soon be in view. There will be a traffic light just past the stadium. Continue straight, and make a left turn at the stop sign, onto NW 8th Avenue. On your right, across from the entrance to Palm Beach State College, is T6, a long single-story building with a tall brick chimney. This is the place!

In Lot 45, which is the parking lot just north of Buildings T5 and T6.
