MARKETS FOR MAKERS ELEVATES EMERGING BRANDS BY CREATING UNIQUE SHOPPING EXPERIENCES.
To find premier spaces and transform them into a market experience. Our markets are carefully curated with Makers who create items you can’t easily find in stores. It’s about the discovery of one-of-a-kind or small batch items you never thought to look for. These Makers specialize in home decor, fashion, art, design, food and more. We aim to forge the relationship between independent artists and their future loyal customers.
WHO ARE THE MAKERS?
Makers are artists, writers, photographers, collectors and designers, they are the creators and dreamers that are driven to create the next great brands of the future.
Founded in 2015, Markets for Makers has seen explosive growth and success of all of our markets through collaborations with key partners and the use of social media and marketing. Renowned for our ability to promote markets, we expanded across the US in 2018 with 10 new markets and growing to double our markets in cities nationwide by 2020.
Our markets are different in that they comprise a diverse collection of handmade makers, boutiques, vintage and unique items you can’t find in stores. Attendees can enjoy these hundreds of Makers while also enjoying food, drinks and photo walls that create memorable experiences.
