The MidCity Makers Market has set forth to create a community where visitors of all ages can experience the best of what the Baton Rouge area has to offer when it comes to artists, makers, bakers, painters, and creators of any kind.
The founders and friends, Paul Claxton, Justin Lemoine and Dawson and Madeline Ellis of Mimosa Handcrafted teamed up to take their spark of an idea to have a quick holiday trunk show and turn it into something the whole city could enjoy. They pulled from all of their resources to cover every angle of creating an event people would enjoy. Friend and former classmate Matt Dawson of Stay Gray PonyBoy designed the branding and once they had a vision for what the market could be they took off running with it. The first market on December 16, 2015 was a smashing success.

Almost five years in now it's ever growing. The MMM team planned a big launch but then COVID happened...that said, going forward, the new location of the MidCity Makers Market will be held at Electric Depot! We are very excited about this new partnership.
