Market Days is one of the Southeast’s largest and best-juried arts and crafts shows, featuring the unique, handmade creations of over 300 artists and top-quality artisans and craftspeople. Filling six of the large fairgrounds’ buildings, as well as outdoor plazas and medians, Market Days offers a beautiful array of works in various price ranges, from breathtaking fine art to charming stocking stuffers.
The works include fine arts, ceramics, country furniture, stained glass, woodwork, glasswork, dolls, clocks, pottery, jewelry, sculpture, metalwork, clothing, photography and calligraphy. The exceptional quality of the arts and crafts is ensured through a jury selection process in which hundreds of applications are submitted by artists and craftspeople from across the United States. Also, Market Days serves up mouth-watering foods and refreshments.
Held each year at the North Florida Fairgrounds, it also is a significant fund-raiser for the Tallahassee Museum, the capital city’s oldest museum, promoting conservation of regional history, culture and wildlife for over 60 years. The 54th Annual Market Days event will be held on the first weekend of December––Saturday (10 am – 5 pm) and Sunday (10 am – 4 pm), December 7 and 8 – at the North Florida Fairgrounds, 441 Paul Russell Road in Tallahassee.
