ABOUT MAKER'S MARKET CLT!

Maker's Market CLT produces curated retail events with an ever-revolving group of artisanal vendors. We partner with city hotspots to emphasize local craftspeople, handmade wares, and small businesses.
Maker's Market CLT started in 2018 to give visibility and public access to local makers and small businesses, and has grown rapidly since.
From Spring to Fall, we produce multiple markets every week throughout Charlotte and surrounding areas. Then in Winter, we highlight a few vendors each month during smaller showcase events at our indoor venues.
In addition to our weekly markets, we produce seasonal festivals and showcase events.
 
We are always interested in exploring opportunities to expand and create! Feel free to get in touch if you'd like to propose a market near you.
