Support the Makers

Passionately championing small independent makers from across the United Kingdom

What a Summer that was!

We have had the most incredible summer collaborating with  Seb’s Urban Jungle to launch Festival City Market.   

We filled the amazing shop with all our favourite things, houseplants, coffee, cake, handmade products, vintage clothing, creative workshops, magician shows, puppet shows, live music, DJ and we loved it! 

Another highlight to our summer was teaming up with End of Terrace TradingFiddy and MabelSolas Sea Glass and Made By Ruu to attend Fringe By The Sea in North Berwick.  The weather was awesome, the customers were ace and the food was delicious!

A word from our makers

Doing markets with Support The Makers has been such a great experience. I feel super lucky to be surrounded by such a lovely and supportive community of makers and Carmen puts so much hard work into making sure we are all seen! I can't wait to continue doing markets in the future!

Support the Makers is full of heart and passion for the hand-crafted, locally made, independent businesses. At the core of STM is a desire to promote makers like me, and give us a strong platform from which to go from strength to strength. The physical markets are busy events, well organised, promoted and diverse. It’s all down to a single person who drives this community with enthusiasm, love and commitment. Carmen is always on fire and I love her excitement for makers like me.

Being involved with Support the Makers Markets and Support the Makers has given me a feeling of community. I’ve met so many lovely people through them and it’s given me a network of creative people that I didn’t have before.

I have been lucky enough to to be part of the support the makers across three platforms •Instagram takeover •online makers market • physical markers marker And now with the website it means makers have even more coverage. It’s so exciting to have the new website because now everything is in one place, you can find out more about the makers and where to purchase their crafts and what ‘Support the Makers’ is all about. Being part of this makers community is so encouraging, inspiring and also fulfils my shopping habit! Carmen is amazing and is responsible for it all. She is so supportive, believes in all the makers and does endless amounts of work.
