Call for Local Makers

We are seeking artists, crafters and makers to participate in 2018. Our goal is to create a unique and hyperlocal marketplace that is representative and inclusive of the community.


The first dates are free! The success of the early events will determine pricing for future opportunities. Apply now to be considered for an early spot. Makers must bring a tent and weights.

Makers and creative entrepreneurs from Minneapolis and surrounding neighborhoods will receive special consideration, as will POCI applicants who are strongly encouraged to apply.

We do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national or ethnic origin, age, religion, disability, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression.

About Us

We have hosted craft fairs in St. Paul and Northeast Minneapolis for the past 13 years. Last fall, we hosted five test markets downtown at different times, days, and locations. We took what we learned in 2017 to plan the 2018 events.

Questions? Email us or send us a note through the contact form. We would love to talk with you about our plans for the year!
