CALL FOR MAKERS
We still have room for a few more makers in the Springtide Makers Marketplace. We’re looking for local makers, local artisans, and interesting creative boutiques. Our emphasis is always on authenticity, fair trade practices, and the handmade. Email JCBA Director John Cutrone at (email@example.com) for complete details.
WHERE IS BUILDING T6
The easiest way to find our venue is to keep your eyes open for the blue and white MAKERS MARKETPLACE signs we’ll have posted on campus roads directing you to the market. Historic T6 and its neighboring companion Building T5 are remnants from the World War II era Boca Raton Army Airfield. The two buildings are easily spotted as they look nothing like the rest of our campus buildings. They both resemble old army barracks buildings with tall brick chimneys rising from the center of each. They are located on FAU's Boca Raton campus, at the northeast corner, very close to Henderson School and the FAU Football Stadium and directly across the street from the east entrance of Palm Beach State College. The easy to spot directional road signs are placed strategically on main campus roads to guide shoppers to our venue and to free, close-by parking.
From the NEW I-95 interchange and Spanish River Boulevard:
Exit 48A takes you directly from the interstate to FAU. Once you pass the traffic light at Spanish River Boulevard, you are on the FAU campus on FAU Boulevard. Keep to the left lane and you will see a blue and white MAKERS MARKETPLACE sign directing you to make a soft left onto NW 8th Avenue. Our venue at historic Building T6 will come up soon after. Should you miss the soft left onto NW 8th Avenue, stay on FAU Boulevard; you will soon see a field on your right and then FAU Stadium. Stay in the left lane, and you’ll see another blue and white MAKERS MARKETPLACE sign directing you to turn left at Palm Beach State College Drive. Turn left again at NW 8th Avenue. Our venue at historic Building T6 will be on the right.
From Glades Road:
Enter the FAU campus at the main entrance (the one closest to I-95) and you will find yourself on West University Drive. Continue straight. The road will curve eventually and become North University Drive and FAU Stadium will soon be in view. There will be a traffic light just past the stadium. Continue straight, and make a left turn at the stop sign, onto NW 8th Avenue. On your right, across from the entrance to Palm Beach State College, is T6, a long single-story building with a tall brick chimney. This is the place!
FREE EASY PARKING!
In Lot 45, which is the parking lot just north of Buildings T5 and T6.
