The primary focus of the Makers Markets at Arlene’s is to promote the local creative community while developing a marketplace where people can purchase uniquely created items. We are looking for makers, including artists, artisans, and manufacturers of unique products, that offer well-designed quality products. Makers that have a clear voice whether expressed through a traditional medium or something experimental.

“We’re excited to help support our local community and create fun events for people to attend,” said Andrew Ochal, director of the Makers Market at Arlene’s. “There will be 7 different Makers at each Market with a total of 21 makers showcased. There is such a variety of great products you’d had to go to ever Market. Markets are sure to be a great time for everyone.”
