Makers Market at The Stomping Ground | A Monthly Open Air Market Featuring Live Music and Food Trucks

The Stomping Ground and Makers Market are collaborating to bring Gilroy a new take on an Open Air Market. There will be 20+ local makers selling All-American Handcrafted goods from 2-8pm at The Stomping Ground on the 2nd Saturday of every month —  July 13th and August 10th (with more dates to be added). Local artists will be selling US handcrafted goods such as jewelry, handbags, ceramics, glassware, soaps, succulents, candles and more! 

The Stomping Ground is currently home to three wineries on one property. One of the perks to having Makers Market on The Stomping Ground’s premises is when customers spend $75+ from makers, they can enjoy a complimentary tasting for two wines at all 3 wineries. Additionally, there will be a local food truck parked on-site from 2-8pm so be sure to come hungry! This monthly open air market coincides with The Stomping Ground’s Sip ‘N Sway Saturday Concert Series. Every Saturday, there will be a live band from 6:30-9:30pm on the outdoor stage. A perfect event to sip, shop, eat and dance! 

Markers Market, with stores located in Santana Row, Broadway Plaza, Napa and Mill Valley, aims to bring you products that honor the ideals of American craftsmanship and Modern + Heritage inspired. Join them in their mission of rebuilding the Legacy of American Made, while supporting local artists and the community. Visit one of their stores today!
