About Makers Market

Two women visit with a local artist who makes potteryMakers Market is an event hosted by Mobile Museum of Art in June and December. What started as a humble night market in 2014 has become an exciting event that’s the talk of the town today.

When we originally came up with this program, we wanted to find a way to bring our community’s talented artists together to sell their wares. In the past decade, we’ve celebrated creativity, our community, and local business through the market. Not only is this an opportunity for small businesses to flex their craft, but it also acts as great exposure for these artists.

Makers Market has become one of MMofA’s most dynamic and well-attended events. The last five markets have brought together more than 800 people at each event, and we’re gearing up to do even more!


MMofA is currently seeking sponsors for the FY2025 Makers Markets!

Sponsorships cover the cost of running the markets including advertising, art supplies, printed materials, and more. This event is a great opportunity to not only support your community’s local artists, but it’s also a great chance to promote your business. For more information, please click here.
