Valdosta Main Street Kicks off First Downtown Maker's Market

Staff Report From Valdosta CEO

Friday, February 8th, 2019

Valdosta Main Street will kick off its first-ever Downtown Maker's Market on April 13 and is seeking art, craft, vintage, produce, growers and antique vendors for this market. Maker’s Market is an expansion to Farm Days, but with more arts.

This year, the location of the market will be at the Historic Courthouse Square in Downtown Valdosta. Maker’s Market will be open starting April 13 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and will be held every second Saturday every month in 2019.

Maker’s Market vendors will offer a variety of goods for sale, like locally-grown and locally-made products, such as fruits, vegetables, handmade soaps, body products and more. The market will also have a booth that will feature a local non-profit from the community every market Saturday.

"We believe the new expansion of the Maker's Market event will be positive for the market and will increase the number of vendors and community involvement," said Main Street Director Ellen Hill. "We are so fortunate to have this venue that allows local producers and artists to gather in one place for the economic and health benefits of our community.”

Vendors will pay $30 per market or a discounted price for multiple bookings. Applications and fee schedules for artisans, food purveyors, and farmers are available at or on their Facebook, Valdosta Main Street.
