LiveNF started the Makers Market in 2017 within two vacant store fronts. We didn’t know if vendors would show up, let alone customers. But, we took a bet on local creativity. It worked. 50 vendors and hundreds of customers spent the day with us on Third Street.
Last year’s Makers Market transformed the former Niagara Gazette warehouse and Press Box into a 60+ vendor, 1,000+ customer party as part of Jingle Falls USA.
In 2019, the LiveNF Makers Market is growing. We are teaming up with the Niagara Falls Conference Center and Yelp Buffalo to create a larger market, highlighting remarkable and local makers on November 30. We are hosting the event on Small Business Saturday because nothing is more local than handmade and are excited to be the first event of the 2019 Jingle Falls USA season.
In those vacant store fronts and warehouse over the past two years, LiveNF created a vibe that hopefully has staying power. We want to get locals together, support and feature local vendors and create an enjoyable day in our city.
It is so easy to click on an app and have holiday shopping done in 20 minutes, free shipping included. We get that. But, there is something special about buying a local gift, with intention, from an artisan who made it with passion. We hope you will join us. If you are a vendor, or even an aspiring one, we hope you will make with us. Details listed below. Let’s make.
