About the Market: 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. Qualifications:
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 due to our proximity and partnership with the Durham Farmers Market.
All sellers and their representatives must abide by the responsibilities and requirements set forth in the Craft Market Rules.
The Selection Process: The Selection Committee will be made up of Durham Craft Market members appointed by the DCM Steering Committee. Selection Committee members are committed to reviewing each application with the utmost integrity and respect. Decisions will be made on the basis of perceived quality, workmanship, creativity, uniqueness, and market availability for the specific craft type. The Selection Committee may limit the number of sellers within the same category.
