Get Involved

We are dedicated to the arts and our community and love to meet people who are as well!

We’re always on the hunt for helping hands, and there are a number of ways you can be involved in the Market. If you love indie arts & crafts and would like to be involved in this awesome community event, get in touch with us!


Corporate sponsors can help underwrite our event costs, and sponsorship comes with a number of perks, including visible logos on signage, website ads, blog posts, etc. If you are an area business that wants to be associated with a forward-thinking, art- and family-friendly event like this, contact Kelly Nogoski, Market founder and co-coordinator.


We love volunteers, and we’ve been graced with a great group of helpers the past few years! Wanna help too? On the day of the event, we’ll need all hands on deck for setup, tear-down and just making sure everyone’s happy and taken care of. And with balloons. We give out lots of balloons. ;)

If you can’t make it to the event but would still like to help out, we need help in the months leading up to the Makers Market with promotion and prep. Even an hour of your time would be a HUGE help to us. Seriously. Please let us know if you’d be up for lending a hand!


Our staff is passionate about music, so we’re committed to making good tunes a part of the Traverse City Makers Market! That said, we are looking for a number of bands/musicians to provide the soundtrack for the day. We can offer great exposure (the foot traffic is awesome, a featured blog post, web ads, etc.) and a really appreciative audience. We can also offer our undying love and devotion. Think you might want to offer your time and talents? Drop us a line!


Traverse City is building its reputation as a foodie town, and we’re proud to offer some of the best eats in TC at the TCMM! If you’re a food vendor interested in setting up shop at a well-attended, well-publicized event, we may have room for you! Please let us know if you’d be interested in providing samples throughout the day. You can also apply to run a full-on booth … just get in touch with us!
