This outdoor market is a mecca for discerning buyers with a passion for supporting local crafts

The Hollywood Artisans Market is no ordinary marketplace, it’s a curated pop-up emporium with purpose. Located just next to the Hollywood Walk of Fame, you’ll discover 90 vendors (that are 99% female-owned) with elevated offerings that reflect the diverse and vibrant city they were made in. Its main mission? To bring the community together, empower local small businesses and create little moments.    

Every other Sunday, you can get lost in the beauty and whimsy of the displays while celebrating these incredible artisans. The garments, jewelry, art, food and other unique treasures are largely handmade and created out of love and fierce passion. Much like the famed Farmer’s Market located just a block away, it offers the opportunity to break away from commercial stores while getting to know the makers of these genuine wares and their stories. Another factor that separates this market from the rest is all vendors get to keep 100% of the profits. 

There’s nothing quite as satisfying as finding original locally made pieces to fill your home with. You’ll find beautiful ceramics and other quirky artworks created by local craftsmen that make for a perfect gift—if you’re willing to part with them. 

When it comes to style, L.A. is undoubtedly one of the best places to express yourself, there is nothing to wacky or eclectic as long as it’s original. After perusing the rails of one-of-a-kind garments and jewelry it will be nearly impossible to leave empty-handed here. 

Of course, no market in L.A. is complete without food. So at some point, you’ll want to make your way to the food court with over 25 incredible vendors filling the air with sweet aromas. From funnel cake loaded with ice cream and fruit to fresh tacos and candy floss, there’ll be delicious fare on every corner—so come hungry!
