"It’s a well-curated craft, art, and design pop-up. It’s also a music fest, a wellness marketplace, and an organic food fair. But it goes beyond that. We’re building a community and, we hope, creating an unforgettable experience. It’s a place for artisans to share their craft, where commerce is ethical and conscious. A place for like-minded people to gather, to inspire and be inspired. To find new ways to heal and expand. We like to think of it as a festival with deeper meaning. One with a connection to art and craft beyond consumerism. One with food that nourishes and music that resonates. One that speaks to a higher consciousness, and a more beautiful, insightful, deliberate way of living." —MERCADO SAGRADO
“If you’re an impassioned lover of the earth, peace, and nature—and probably eat everything organic—this two day festival is your new home away from home.” —TIME OUT
"Boutique LA festival Mercado Sagrado, described as “a creative and healing arts fair,” is set to go off November 16 and 17 this year at King Gillette Ranch in Malibu Canyon. The two-day family-friendly event will feature panels, talks, workshops, and live music, seeking to act as a “counterculture Coachella.”
Heather Culp founded Mercado back in 2014, and has since grown the fair from five hundred attendees that year to well over four thousand in 2018. The 2019 music lineup includes Australian psych band Babe Rainbow and LA artists Claude Fontaine, Anna St. Louis, Mapache, and Matt Taylor from The Growlers. The food area (called “Nourishment”) will play host to LA restaurants providing health-conscious food, and the kids area is co-programmed by LA organization EverWild, whose learning programs encourage connection with the earth and aim to build a lifelong affinity for sustainability and environmentalism."
