NEXT MARKET – JULY 9, 2017 – MCR Lot, 6134 Highway 9 – Felton
The Santa Cruz Mountains Makers Market is dedicated to supporting the community by giving local artists, crafters, culinary creators, and musicians a venue to showcase and sell their goods in the mountains while also financially benefiting a local non-profit, Mountain Community Resources (MCR).
The Market debuted at the Mountain Community Resource’s parking lot at 6134 Highway 9, Felton, CA on May 4, 2014. Following the success of the first Market, three more Markets were held in 2014 including the SCM Makers Holiday Market held at the Felton Community Hall. Now in its fourth year, the SCM Makers Market is stoked to give local artists, crafters, and musicians this great place in the mountains to sell their handmade goods.
We offer a variety of booth sizes to accommodate any size maker’s business. There are 10×10 booths, 6 ft. table booths, and 4 ft. table booths available. As part of the application fee we ask makers to donate one of their items to MCR for their silent auction event in October, The Mountain Affair. This event is MCR’s biggest and most profitable fundraiser of the year. Your donation goes 100% to benefit this amazing non-profit group. For more information about MCR click here.
