Local Artisans, Local Wine, Local Food, Local Non-Profits… Let’s get together and show some love for our locals!

Join us in celebrating the talented local artisans that make up Sugar Farms Marketplace with an Open House Celebration. But wait, there’s not going to be just ONE Open House Celebration at Sugar Farms Marketplace… There’s going to be THREE!

Sugar Farms is an artisanal marketplace that offers primarily locally sourced gifts that are handmade and/or one-of-a-kind. They offer products for the keen buyer wanting something that is not only unique but also of high-quality. The marketplace, located in the courtyard of Carmel Plaza, features various vendor stalls focusing on each artisan’s creation telling a small story about not just the product but also the creator of the product. This unique shopping experience allows buyers see exactly how the product came to be and by whose hands it was created.

On Friday, February 11th, February 25th and March 11th, from 5PM – 8PM we invite you to meet the artisans, see their creations up close, ask questions, experience the wonder and enjoy yourself while supporting local artisans, sipping local wine from Hahn Family Winery and enjoying tasty small bites from various locations including local favorite, The Cheese Shop. There will also be opportunities to enter fun raffles and giveaways as well as to learn more about a few local non-profits. Details for each night are below:
