This weekend, Out of the Box Collective will be showing at one of our favorite holiday markets of the year, the Echo Park Craft Fair (December 12 & 13.) The fair features a gathering of LA’s talented and unique artists and is perfectly timed for all our holiday shopping needs. We asked the ladies behind one of our favorite farm delivery services to tell us what farm-to-table discoveries they’ll be offering for fair goers and who else they’ll be shopping this weekend!
This weekend we’re most excited about stepping away from the farmer’s market to broaden our horizons with a stand at the Echo Park Craft Fair, LA’s “it” destination for holiday shoppers hoping to discover the perfect handcrafted gift for friends and family members.
The two-day event will bring together local artists and makers of a wide range of handcrafted gifts! Out of the Box Collective will be there with holiday gifts – and our famous fresh-squeezed orange juice! – to help visitors power through the more than 80 local artisans showcasing their inspired works of art: handbags, designer clothes, artwork, pottery, and more.
All about THE ECHO PARK CRAFT FAIR:
Revel in artistic, handcrafted beauty! It’s a great way to enjoy the holidays while taking a break from the big-box chain stores at the local mall. The Echo Park Craft Fair has become a mecca for shoppers and patrons who support this flourishing craft community as it keeps redefining the spirit of creativity year after year. Unlike your average church craft fair, the Echo Park Craft Fair has caught the attention of everyone from the New York Times to fashionistas and trendsetters. Get inspired, save your pennies, and find unique gifts for your entire gift list!
VISIT OUR FAVORITE artisans:
Agnes Baddoo, a designer of leather and canvas goods; Zen Bunny, a maker of bio-dynamic chocolate; and many of the food makers we sell on our online storefront, such as maker of gorgeous nut butters, Solstice Canyon are a few must visits. Bring a friend and join our very own customers – event organizers Beatrice Valenzuela and Rachel Craven – who have grown this event from its modest beginnings in Beatrice’s backyard.
BUILD YOUR OWN Farm Box:
Come build a gift box with us while you’re there! We will offer the perfect selection of stocking stuffers – from Entube’s Harissa Chili Paste to Nobel’s Chamomile-Infused Maple Syrup to 24 Blackbirds Chocolate Bars — and other $5 – $40 favorites from Malibu Honey, Omnivore’s Salt, Pacific Pickle Works Asparagus and Sqirl Jams. Package your selections in a beautiful Out of the Box Collective slide-top wooden box suitable for domestic shipping for holiday gifts. We’ll also be serving up our signature fresh-squeeze orange juice, so come say hi!
