About Us

We have hosted craft fairs in St. Paul and Northeast Minneapolis for the past 13 years. 2018 was the first full season for our Nicollet Makers Market.

About the Market

Once again the Market will be located on the sidewalk of Nicollet between 6th & 8th streets (outside of Gaviidae Common and the IDS Center), with Maker tents in the permanent farmers market booth spaces under the light walk.
