You can’t miss The Rain Barrel Artisan Village on Overseas Highway, because it has a gigantic crab near its front door. Inside are little walkways to hidden treasures—original paintings and other artwork created by local artisans, handmade jewelry, a variety of souvenirs, yard signs, and...More

It’s worth it to stop there just to get a photo with that big freaking lobster. It cost a quarter of $1 million I have that made. I have probably emailed that photo 200 times.

Expected more.... but just a mix of tourist knickknacks. A few shops are local artisans — candles, photos...and are average quality with fairly high prices. Some clothing....definitely not a collection of art galleries as advertised.

Lobster is an icon, but had hoped to see more local unique art, nothing I had not seen before. Concept is neat, but maybe not quite ready for tourist season? I remembered it fuller last year and less imported items

The variety of craft stalls is matched by the reasonable price of the items for sale. The restaurant offers an adequate menu but lacks the location of other restaurants in the area.
