The Durham Craft Market is a fun outdoor market that offers a rotating slate of approximately 40 local artisans representing a variety of hand-made arts and crafts. We are proud to provide a marketplace that encourages creativity and design innovation and honors the art of craftsmanship. Artists sign up online through Sign Up Genius each week and spaces are allocated weekly on a first come first serve basis. A wait list is maintained each week and members can choose to set up at the Art Market at Vega Metals if they are on the waitlist.
- Each seller must reside and make the items to be sold within a 50-mile radius of the Durham city limits, in the state of North Carolina.
- Each seller must be the original producer of the items sold. Sellers may designate personal representatives to attend the Market (family members, employees, etc.)
- The seller’s items must be artistic in nature and show personal creativity. All items must be handcrafted. The Durham Craft Market Selection Committee reserves the right to make the subjective judgments about the creative and handcrafted nature of the items sold. Consumable food may not be sold at the Durham Craft Market.
- All sellers and their representatives must abide by the responsibilities and requirements set forth in the Craft Market Rules.
