Welcome to the MidCity Makers Market!

Hey there!

We would love to have you join the MMM!

Yay! Ok – So now what?

Great question. Here we go: 

We have a one-time onboarding fee of $50 and market prices vary depending on location and size of the spot. If you select a tent spot, we require WHITE 10' x 10' tents to be used. Once your onboarding fee is paid, immediately request to join the MMM Members Only Facebook Group. The group is the best place to find info on markets, get advice from other makers, and it's just an all-around supportive community. Search Mid City Makers Market: Members Only on Facebook, answer the questions, and request access.

OK - STOP. Reread that last sentence. Got it? Cool.

Here is a detailed breakdown of the costs for each market:

$30: 6’ Table only space (no tent/ canopy allowed)

$40: 10’x10’ space. Only WHITE 10’x10’ canopies can be used.


Got it. What else will I need to bring?

Man – you are on your game today! Another great question. Here we go:

When you select a spot (more on that later), you are purchasing the space and power only. You will need to bring a WHITE 10’x10’ tent (unless you grabbed a table spot), tables, chairs, a cart to haul your loot, cashbox, credit card swiper, LED lighting, extension cord, and power strip.

All spots have power ran to them, but you may need an extension cord or two. At this time, Electric Depot does not have Wi-Fi available in the outside area.

Yep – I have all that (or will very soon). How do I get a spot at the Market? Also, when is the next market?

Wow – it sounds like you’ve done this before. Here we go:

I will announce when tickets go on sale on our MEMBERS ONLY FACEBOOK GROUP and an email if you’ve signed up for them.


Great! Just a few more questions. What does set up look like?

Zing! You are 4 for 4! Here we go:

Set up is usually between 4 pm and 5:30 pm with most events starting at 6 pm. Please arrive during this time. Makers that arrive after 6 pm will not be allowed to set up and no refund will be issued. If there are any changes to event dates or times, you will be notified.

*Sees a cloud. Oh no! It looks like rain! What do we do?!?

Yep – that question comes up a lot. MMM is a rain or shine event. We monitor the weather for the week of the event. If it is really bad, we’ll cancel the event and issue refunds. In most cases, the weather blows through and we have a beautiful day. Assume the market is happening. We will announce a cancellation early that day and immediately issue refunds. If not, pack a rain coat and head on over.


That was a lot of info. Below is a quick checklist:
