Celebrating modern craft and the maker spirit

Berea Makers Market is an indie craft market founded in 2016. We're dedicated to promoting local creatives and connecting with buyers who are looking for beautifully crafted, handmade goods.

our Story


I’m Laura and I’m the founder of Berea Makers Market.

We hosted our first market in spring 2017, because we wanted to create an exciting new event for Makers and shoppers alike! Our team includes Ana Maria Salvaggio (renmeleon), designer extraordinaire, and Bryan Kidd (Added Touch KY), event planner and stylist.

We host two shows yearly, and hope to expand to include pop-up markets, workshops and more events. Huge thanks to all of our fans who’ve attended our shows and are supporting handmade in Berea.


Many thanks go out to our incredible volunteers who have helped get Berea Makers Market off the ground:

Michael Startzman (This Is Berea); Jessica Holly; Courtney Howard (Run2theWild); Ana Maria Selvaggio (renmeleon); Bryan Kidd (The Added Touch), Joe and Jessica Spencer, and Steve Johnson (Honey and the Bee Music).
