Before Handmade Toledo opened their brick-and-mortar Maker’s Shop on Adams Street in 2014, owner Jessica Crossfield hosted Toledo’s first juried indie craft fair, Maker’s Mart, in April of 2012. Celebrating the area’s scene of DIY artists and artisans, the single day, now semi-annual, fair feels like Etsy IRL and continues to grow each year, attracting more than 6,000 people last year. The can’t-miss event returns (just in time for Mother’s Day shopping) with the Maker’s Mart Spring Edition on Saturday, May 11. Shop over 100 handmade vendors while sipping locally roasted coffee, craft cocktails and beer and fare from local food trucks.
