craftHER Market Fall 2019


CRAFTHER MARKET RE-OPENS ON OCTOBER 12 AND 13 IN AUSTIN, TEXAS AT FAIR MARKET.

Produced by #bossbabesATX, craftHER Market is a biannual pop-up space, showcasing the talent of women and nonbinary makers in Texas.

This Fall 2019, the market returns for its first-ever time as a two-day pop-up on October 12 and 13 at Fair Market in Austin, Texas. The market will be open from 11 AM to 5 PM each day. Applications for one-day and two-day booths are open now.


— BEHIND CRAFTHER MARKET —

At #bossbabesATX, all of our productions are centered around sustaining communities that care about gender equality and supporting local, creative businesses.

craftHER Market is no different. It's been inspired by a few of our favorite things: pop-up spaces, traditional marketplaces and the people who organize others to gather. In its two years of production, craftHER Market has showcased more than 600 makers and seen 15,000+ attendees and 1,800+ applicants. Opening every Spring and Fall, the two-day community event features entrepreneurial panels, opportunities to support local nonprofits and family-friendly activities. Reflecting a myriad of women and nonbinary artists and creative entrepreneurs across Texas, all 150 of our seasonal exhibitors own their craft, and at least 90% of our booths exhibit wares made by hand. 🎈Check out the recap from Spring '19.

This Fall, the market returns on October 12 and 13 to Fair Market in Austin, Texas—for the first time ever as a two-day pop-up! Applications are open now for $5.
