Thank you for your interest in applying to be a vendor at the Change Makers Collective Markets!
Change Makers Collective is an artisan partnership focused on being eco-friendly, supporting local and giving back to the community.
It’s our hope to create a space where local vendors can access affordable market space to showcase their work. We aim to keep fees low and give back to local charities and non-profits.
Step into our curated market, where creativity meets sustainability! We’re passionate about offering a diverse shopping experience, carefully curating vendors to avoid oversaturation in any one category. Embracing uniqueness, we exclusively welcome vendors with handmade, upcycled, or vintage treasures. No MLM’s, please.
At the heart of our market is a commitment to environmental responsibility. We invite vendors who share our our vision for a greener future, incorporating eco-friendly practices into their craft. From upcycling and reusing materials to innovative recycling methods, we’re seeking artisans dedicated to reducing their environmental footprint.
To help guide our community towards eco-friendly practices, we’ve shared practical tips in our Instagram post on “Integrating Sustainability“. As vendors, lets unite in our efforts to weave environmental consciousness into the fabric of our day-to-day work and art.
