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.
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.
