Event description


This application is to be used by artists and makers wishing to have a stall at Minneapolis Craft Market. For full details on selection criteria and what is included in your stall fee, please visit mplscraftmarket.com. This is a one-time application; once approved you will be eligible to register for all future market dates as they are released and do not need to reapply each year.

Note: If you are already an approved trader, you do not need to reapply each year, you can skip straight to registration and sign up for market dates.

The application fee is $15.00 and is non-refundable and non-transferable. Makers should review the application and the selection criteria carefully and submit accurate descriptions and links to your work to ensure your application can be reviewed. Incomplete applications will not be processed. If your application is successful, you may register for as many dates as you want, subject to availability.

Selection Criteria
At Minneapolis Craft Market, we aim to provide our visitors with a diverse range of creative work handmade in Minnesota. Our shoppers are looking for unique designs that cannot be found elsewhere. As such, we carefully review all trader applications, and make our selections based on the following criteria:

  • Innovative and original work; independent designs, adopting and/or using traditional crafts, new technologies in art and design, innovative methods of making, handmade products.
  • Creativity and professionalism of the finished product, including the presentation of images or collateral used for marketing.
  • Ethical sourcing (e.g. recycled materials, fair trade).
  • Lack of similarity to products already in the marketplace.

Please visit our website FAQ page for more details about the types of vendors we are looking for and how our markets work.

Application Process
We will review and respond to your application within 14 days. If you do not receive a response within this time frame, please email holler@mplscraftmarket.com.

If your application is approved, you will be sent an approval email containing the following:

  1. A request to submit your ST19 form (Operator Certificate of Compliance) as evidence that you have a valid MN tax ID number, or do not need to have one per MN Dept. of Revenue rules. This form must be completed and returned to us before you will be able to participate in the market.
  2. A link to register and pay for upcoming market dates. You may register for as many dates as you want, subject to availability.
