Not quite what I expected, it seemed a little run down and dark and dismal. I could not find anything really to hold my attention and only made a short shop.

Nice collection of artists and a variety of items. There are artists on the premises and you can watch them create. Tshirts and stickers available, pots and yard items as well as clothing and shoes, and houseware items too. Always fun to visit when in Islamorada.

Can't miss it - GIANT LOBSTER out front! Lots of local arts and crafts. Food and drinks available. Touristy, but worth a stop.

Have visited Islamorada several times and always wanted to stop here. On our most recent visit had some time before our snorkeling trip so finally made the stop and so glad. Of course the huge lobster in the front is eye-catching and worth a photo op. Once you enter the front door it is so unique. It's many different artists... More

Lots of things to see and buy at the Village. Excellent place to get your picture taken with Betsy the big lobster out front. We met some wonderful shop keepers and bought some mementos to carry home.

This place is weird. Other than the big lobster it's not worth seeing. The people that have shops here are all weird!! Most of then are selling junk. Others are selling high end art.

This Artisan Village is worth the stop if you are into the arts and crafts. This place is bigger than it looks and has all kinds of little craft stores hidden in the woods. Most of these little shops are art studios of local craftsmen.

It's really not a sight seeing spot, if you wanna buy kitsch, and souvenirs this is the spot to go throw your money away at. There's no actual main attraction, just a strip mall for souvenirs disguised as a quaint village.

What a cute art village. IOther than the main entrance which you can't pass by without seeing the huge lobster statue that you'll just want to stop and take a picture of. What you don't see if the village of art and trinket shoppes hidden in this surprisingly vast property. I think because people really don't know, they don't stop,... More

Studios with on-site artists working on original pieces available for questions. Unique casual/tropical atmosphere. Non-tacky souvenirs and jewelry.
