Staged in an empty warehouse in downtown Los Angeles and packed with handmade wares, the Parachute Market is a welcome respite from larger design fairs. Patrons can meet more than 40 designers while shopping for locally produced goods.

Returning vendors to the third market include Echo Park furniture and lighting designer Brendan Ravenhill, textile and furniture duo Brook & Lyn, ceramic artist Bari Zipperstein and Highland Park woodworkers Linda Hsiao and Kagan Taylor of Knotwork LA.

Of the more than 40 featured designers, several are new to the event, including cork artist Melanie Abrantes (whose hand-turned planter is shown above), ceramic lighting by Heather Levine, furniture designer Doug McCollough and fiber artist Untitled Rug.

The event also promises food, a dedicated area for vintage fashion and jewelry and complementary art installations by Doron Gazit, Jason Meadows, Johanna Grawunder and Tahiti Pehrson.

Parachute Market, 405 Mateo Street, Los Angeles. Noon to 7 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is $10; children younger than 10 free.
