Very cute place. Pleasant to spend an afternoon browsing.

I live in SFL and have passed this place for years and have always wanted to stop. Finally, last weekend, was on a girl weekend so it was an easy sell. We came back twice. Nice... read more

Most of the shops in The Rain Barrel Artisan Village are full of the usual tourist stuff but some of it is nice and the shop owners are interesting people. There is a lady who paints light-switch covers with marine life and the flora and fauna of the Keys and they are really lovely.

This was cute, the vibe of the space is pretty and funky. Shops were just ok. Staff was friendly at each shop. Cute juice shop, shell shops, little jewelry places. A nice way to shop for souvenirs. Wish I could give it 3.5 stars.

It is one of the places that we always try to stop at. It has gone from a artist village to more of a touristy style shops, but it is still one of our favorite stops.

We visit every time we go to the Keys. There are so many wonderful shops filled with such talented artists, beautiful displays of their creations, prices vary so there is something for everyone. Take your time so you don't miss a thing.

Artist's village with unique gifts with island charm. Cindy is a friendly and helpful sales assistant with lots of local knowledge. As well as the perfect gift, she can tell you where to see a sunset, grab a delicious meal or both. Don't forget to take a picture by the giant lobster!

Loved the huge lobster to get out picture taken with it. Had some little funky shops in back. Bought a few gifts for myself and friends.

If you enjoy spending your hard earned money on junk type stuff this is the place for you. it is far bigger than we thought it was from the road, kinda like Snoopy's Dog House. My son is a local, we've never been before and stopped by one afternoon to see what the big deal was. there are individual rooms... More

Went looking for local made goods. It was a neat place but just not much of it. Mostly painting and picture type art. It was like a flea market too much of the same tourist type stuff. We liked looking at the actually buildings better than any of the stores.

This really is a little village of shops that goes back quite a way. My husband and I visited, looking for gifts to bring back to our family. We found plenty of options! My favorite treasure from our trip is a wooden wind chime with sailboats on it. Worth the stop for sure.
