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 first-ever Indiana Artisan Holiday Marketplace. The traditional launch to the holiday shopping season, the weekend after Thanksgiving includes Small Business Saturday. On Nov. 29 and 30, shop nearly 75 small art and food businesses, all honored by the State for their work in exceptional locally-crafted art and foods.
