— ABOUT THE 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 day-long 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 115 of our seasonal exhibitors own their craft, and at least 90% of our booths exhibit wares made by hand.🎈
