Sure, every day is Mother’s Day, but the second weekend in May is a time for us to remember our moms and give them an extra special “Thank You” for being so wonderful. This year, why not treat your mom to the gift of handcrafted, homemade goodies made with love from some of the best crafters in South Florida and beyond?
The 12th Annual Downtown Sarasota Craft Fair is the ideal place to let the mothers in your life know how much you care. Set against the backdrop of South Florida paradise, in a friendly and charming town whose residents are welcoming and fun, the Downtown Sarasota Craft Fair gives you and your loved ones the chance to meet talented crafters, grab some special finds and generally enjoy the weather and ambiance as you stroll up and down the rows of booths. The best part? There is something for everyone, within anyone’s budget, and you’ll find it all at this free event.
