Minneapolis Craft Market is a community social hub, and an incubator for the arts. We believe the Twin Cities has a unique culture of creativity, and our vision is to provide a regular venue for both emerging and established makers to sell their work. Our market is based on the London street market concept, which is held rain or shine (or snow!). We know Northerners are hardy, so grab a drink, wear your best hand-knitted scarf and mittens, and join us for a festive outdoor market!
We donate 5% of market proceeds each month to a Minnesota-based nonprofit arts organization. Read more...
We believe all artists should have the opportunity to participate in the market, regardless of their ability to pay. Read more...
Hayley Matthews-Jones is from London, where market squares are a way of life. Her local market in Greenwich is a World Heritage site, hosting some of London’s most creative designers and makers every weekend.
Hayley received her Foundation in Art & Design from Central Saint Martins, and her BA in Silversmithing & Metalwork from Camberwell College of Arts (both colleges of University of the Arts London). While pursuing her degree, she coordinated fundraisers and art exhibitions, and her career as an event planner was born. She moved to Minneapolis in 2008, and in 2015 established Vanishing Point Events with the vision of bringing a weekly craft market to Minneapolis.
We are the Twin Cities’ only weekly market dedicated solely to crafts. The market is an outdoor event and features a range of handcrafted goods by designers and makers of the North. Visit the schedule page to see the list of upcoming market dates and venues.
