If I'm being entirely honest, I never fully anticipated the Makers Market becoming what it has. It was October of 2014 and a casual conversation led to an Instagram post asking friends to gather for a pop up weekend. With about twelve makers and a live band in a salon parking lot, MM was born.
Fast forward to almost two years later and the market has grown into a thriving monthly event. In fact, it's growing so much so, we feel we may be outgrowing our space!
The market wouldn't be where it is without all of you, our makers, musicians, + supporters! Not to say our work isn't cut out for us on the back end too. We listen, absorb, brainstorm, + try to evolve in ways that will foster a lively atmosphere for attendees + a successful event for makers.
We've been at our Benelux location for over a year and a half and have just loved setting up in the breezeway -- some days more than windy others! As the market continues to grow, we want to do our best to keep up, so... after much consideration, we've decided to move the market!
It will be a bittersweet market THIS Saturday as we celebrate our last MM in Cameron Village -- be sure to come by from 10-2 to say hi!
And Wednesday we're announcing our new location! Stay tuned...
