Eligibility & Ethos

The Makers Market accepts applications from Los Angeles makers, artisans, visual artists and small cottage industry businesses across all creative disciplines that meet our curation criteria and the general ethos of the Makers Market.

 

We do not accept or curate applications that include any buy/sell items. No exceptions.

We do not accept or curate applications containing products or work manufactured/produced outside of US; products or work imported for resale; products or work who's primary ingredients are manufactured/produced outside of US; any Fair trade products or works.

The Makers Market is artisan focused and in order to ensure that each artisan has a captive audience, we maintain a strict cap on any one ‘type’ of artisan at each market. This cap minimizes sales dilution and provides a more diverse selection for our guests.

 

Artisans retain 100% of their profits.

The most important part about this event besides finding your art a good home? It's to have FUN! Collaborate, support, encourage and be part of a creative community. You never know who you will meet. Enjoy the journey!
