More About Us


Video by SJ Kirby

Milwaukee Makers Market is so much more than a makers and artisan fair. It’s a celebration of the city's creators and our local community. Creator Ryan Laessig curates each market to create a perfect opportunity for small business owners to sell their wares and make connections with fans and other makers.  What started in 2017 as a small outdoor event in the Colectivo Bay View parking lot has grown into the largest, longest-running monthly markets where makers and guests fill venues like  Discovery World Museum, The Ivy House, and local venues. Loyal fans know that MMM creates a safe, fun and unique market experience.  With no at-the-door admission fee, anyone and everyone is welcome to shop or browse.

Our mission is to support local makers by creating fun and safe one-stop-shop experiences, connecting our artisans with current and future fans, and celebrating Milwaukee’s incredible makers community.


Let's uplift local makers’ dreams

- one market at a time.
