Artists Alley & Handmade Marketplace



Artists Alley is an annual seasonal event that runs every November and December at the Orange Home Grown Farmers and Artisans Market. During this time of the year, local artisans are featured, showcasing their talents and creativity during the holidays. Orange County artists are invited to come to the farmers market from the beginning of November to the end of December to sell their artwork and handmade items (pottery, photography, paintings, clothing, jewelry, and more) every Saturday. This gives market patrons the opportunity to purchase locally sourced, one of a kind holiday gifts for loved ones. If you are interested in participating in Artists Alley, an application can be found on our Vendor Application page.

Handmade Marketplace- 4th Saturday of every Month (except November and December). Stop by the Orange Home Grown Farmers and Artisans Market on the 4th Saturday of every month and you will find our pop-up Handmade Marketplace. Artisans change out monthly.

“The event, which is relaxed and full of positive energy, provides shoppers with a convenient opportunity to find unique items that aren’t available at the market throughout the year.”
