Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles is a crafts fair-meets-foodie market in San Pedro. This large-scale handmade artisan marketplace operates year-round and can hold as many as 550 vendors in 10-by-10-foot stalls. It is currently home to more than 100 individual artists, crafters and food makers, each presenting their unique handcrafted goods in a vibrant patchwork of shop spaces.
Opened in 2012 and housed in a classically restored 1940′s-era naval warehouse, Crafted is the creation of Wayne Blank, known for his transformation of an old Southern Pacific rail yard into the Bergamot Station Arts Center in Santa Monica.
Visitors to Crafted can peruse handmade apparel, jewelry, home décor, food goods, and much more. The marketplace also hosts daily demonstrations, Do-it-Yourself classes, as well as live music, special events and delicious food from some of the South Bay’s premier food trucks.
As of February 2016, Crafted at the Port of Los Angeles has a new neighbor. Craft brewer Brouwerij (BROO-er-ee) West has moved into Warehouse No 9 and is open for business after much anticipation. The western half of the 72-year-old warehouse is home to the 15,000-barrel regional brewery. Eventually Brouwerij West will be joined in the east half of Warehouse 9 by an artisan food maker’s space, with a community kitchen, floral studio and a farm-fresh produce stand, all now in conceptual design stages. In the interim, visitors can fill up on goodies from the food trucks outside near the patio. You can see which food trucks are scheduled this weekend on their calendar.
Crafted is open Friday, Saturday, and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Parking and admission are free! To stay up-to-date on market news and events, sign up for their newsletter.
