The Key West Artisan Market season 9 kicks continues this Sunday, January 30, 10 am to 2 pm in the parking lot at Sonny Mccoy Indigenous Park, 1801 White Street. Each Market is themed and pairs with one or more charities to promote community causes. All artists who show at the event are carefully selected and must live and create in the Keys to participate.

Fourth and Pride Vodka will be on hand with tastings and as the official vodka in the handcrafted bloody Marys by Great Events Catering.

The February 13 Valentine’s “Love is in the Air” edition of the Key West Artisan Market is Sunday, February 13 from 10 am to 2 pm.  The event will be collecting for the Key West Police Department Love Fund which supports spouses and children of law enforcement officers killed in the line of duty or who die of natural causes as a result of extraordinary pressures created by the profession. As always, we’re teaming up with the Key West Wildlife Center who will be open for free (donation) tours and ticket sales for their biggest fundraiser of the year which will be held February 20, 3:30 to 6 pm at the East Martello Towers.

Shop a curated outdoor market offering fine crafts, art and jewelry from talented Florida Keys makers. Stock the pantry and fridge with fresh produce, artisan cheeses, local seafood, honey, pickles, pastries, cigars, soaps and so much more. Bring a lawn chair and listen to local musicians presented by the The X Key West and support our featured charities like the Little Pink Houses of Hope who provide seating for donation.
