This will be the 32nd Queen Bee Market since its creation in 2010, with artisans showcasing an array of handmade home décor, accessories, clothing, paper arts, vintage items, furniture and more.

Originally vendors at the popular Queen Bee Market, sisters and North County San Diego locals, Kellie Dooley and Allison Gharst, became the owners in 2014 and hand-selected the vendors who participate in each Queen Bee Market.

A sampling of the confirmed participants thus far includes Allyson Simone BRIDES, a line of fine jewelry crafted for weddings; Hippytoes Pottery, maker of handmade and hand-painted concrete pots; Grace and Salt, a San Diego based company that creates handmade wall art; and more.
