Indiana’s premier art artisans – in clay, wood, watercolors, furniture, glass, jewelry, multi-media, photography, leatherwork, basketry, sculpture, and paper – will be joined by food artisans recognized by the State for their wines, syrups, confections, breads, cookies, sauces, granola, jams, and homestyle noodles, in downtown Fort Wayne’s Grand Wayne Center for the annual Indiana Artisan Holiday Marketplace.

On Nov. 28 and 29, shop 75 small art and food businesses, all honored by the State for their work in exceptional locally-crafted art and foods.
