Behind the markets

Our curated markets showcase exclusive items by Makers specializing in diverse categories like home decor, fashion, art, design, and more. We bridge the gap between independent artists and their loyal customers.

I’m Natalie, after I started my own small business with my best friend, I started markets in 2015 so that I could find a fun cool market to be a part of in my community. I oversee all new cities, marketing, strategy and making sure everything is planned for every market.

Founding & growth

Founded in 2015, Markets for Makers has seen explosive growth and success of all of our markets through collaborations with key community partners and the use of social media and marketing. Renowned for our ability to promote markets, we expanded across the US within a few short years.

Diverse Marketplace

Our markets are distinctive in that they curate a vibrant and eclectic array of skilled handmade makers, charming boutiques, rare vintage treasures, and truly one-of-a-kind items that you can’t find within conventional retail settings.

Engaging Experiences

Attendees can enjoy these hundreds of Makers while also enjoying food, drinks, DIY experiences and photo walls that create memorable experiences. Our markets have lasting impacts on local neighborhoods and communities that we are a part of by naturally revitalizing local economies.
