Del Mar Plaza's European Market Gets Crafty
We give you everything you need to know about the Del Mar Plaza's European Market craft vendors
Earlier this holiday season, the European Market delighted the Del Mar Plaza as delicious eateries teamed up with local craftsmen to provide a fun and festive holiday celebration. We had vendors from all over San Diego selling everything from jewelry to crotched hats to knives and cookware. There were a ton of diverse vendors within the Del Mar Plaza's European Market! Even better, some of the money made during the event benefited Voices for Children, and organization that aids foster children. Below, we give you the skinny on all of our amazing craft vendors.
