If you’re looking for something fun to do this fall, I’m enlisting you to join me for a day of shopping at Boerne Handmade Market on October 29th! Girl’s trip?!? Hey – you could even bring the guys and kids because there will be something for EVERYONE and I’m super excited to go and experience it for myself – I’ve heard so many great things about it.
What is Boerne Handmade Market?
I first heard about Boerne Handmade Market from my sweet friend Ashley Browne – founder of children’s boutique: JAX & BELLE. She had the opportunity to showcase her creations at last year’s market and can’t wait to return October 29th! JAX & BELLE will be there along with over 80 other new and past favorite creative vendors to sell some of the cutest hand-made’s in Texas!
A really unique part of this market is that they “select a panel of jurors from all different backgrounds, with all different tastes, who jury each vendors work” and they “have a cap of 8% of like themed vendors, meaning, [they] will not have more than 8% jewelry (or bath products, or signs, ect.) at each market.” In other words, Boerne Handmade Market features the best creations and the best variety of creations from all over Texas for you to shop from! I’m personally excited to see what’s going on Home Decor-wise for some Airbnb rental sprucing up!
Co-market organizers, Alyssa Mantooth and Beth Zampese, are doing an amazing job of providing hard-working creatives an outlet to share their creations in a super fun environment! Along with all of the unique vendors, the market on October 29th will have live music, food trucks, a live artist painting, a coffee shop, an area for the kids to play and even a man cave area for the dads, hubby’s and boyfriends out there! It’s an event in the Texas Hill Country that the whole family can enjoy.

Boerne Handmade Market is located at the Kendall County Fairgrounds in Boerne, Texas! It’s about 30 miles northwest of San Antonio and only an hour and a half for me coming from Austin. Basically a perfect road trip’s distance away from anywhere in central Texas!
The address is 1307 River Road, Boerne, TX 78006. If you are entering it in GPS, enter “Kendall County Fair Association” and it should pull right up!

Ally Alleman reviewed Boerne Handmade Market — 5 star · Best market I’ve ever been to! The girls who organize it have really gone above and beyond with this and it shows with the growth and different vendors each time. There’s something for everyone at these markets and I always leave with a bag full of amazing things. I’ve been a vendor and a shopper and can say it’s a great event!!
Lindsey Vanzant reviewed Boerne Handmade Market — 5 star · Another great day of shopping. I came home with several unique products! I love supporting all the creative makers. I’ve marked my calendar for the October 29th market.
Rachel Russo reviewed Boerne Handmade Market — 5 star · This market just keeps getting better and better! The new location (Kendall County Fairgrounds) seemed to create a less stressful environment for vendors and shoppers leading up to the event, not having to worry about weather conditions. There is an AMAZING variety of vendors and products. So many one-of-a-kind items! I save up for this event because I know that I will find things that I can’t get any place else! Keep up the good work guys!
