Staff Pick: Kentucky Crafted Market

Hallelujah, it’s back! After six years in Lexington, the Kentucky Crafted Market is returning to Louisville. The signature event of the Kentucky Arts Council, the Market brags it has “the largest number of Kentucky artists … under one roof.” Not only art, but there are also books, Kentucky Proud food and music. A highlight this year is an exhibition by the Kentucky Documentary Photographic Project, with photographs ranging from 1935 to the present. For the first time in its 37 years, there will be public hours on Friday, March 2 from 5-8 p.m. (during the day, Friday is wholesale buyers only).
