This pet-friendly weekly market is a venue for area makers to sell their wares, whether handmade or homegrown. The Claiborne Place Makers Market takes place on Sundays from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm in the parking lot in front of Claiborne Place mall, adjacent to Harbor Freight Tools.
While you'll find a small amount of fresh produce and eggs from time to time, the focus is on goods for the pantry and home. Prepared goods include pickled veggies, jams and jellies, marinades and hot sauces, oils and dressings, beef jerky and Talisheek Farms satsuma honey and satsuma jelly. Freshly prepared foods include baked breads and mobile food vendors with street tacos, hot boiled crawfish, gyros, grilled shrimp & grits, Mi Bop's tamales and more.
The Makers Market features plenty of locally-made items that are great for gifting: The Goat Hippie brand CBD products and tie-dyed clothing, jewelry, garments, face masks and bonsai and other ornamental plants by area growers. Unique vendors include the "witch" with "Poppets" Voodoo dolls, smudge sticks, incense and fragrances, and The Angry Gator Leather Company, a tanner with alligator leather goods--belts, wallets, journal binders, purses, gun holsters and more.
