About Us

Makers Mart is Sacramento’s premier maker fair. Inspired by the creative entrepreneurial spirit of Sacramento, Makers Mart brings together over 70 vendors – a thoughtfully curated slate of craftsmen and women, bespoke brands, designers, and local shops – to showcase the best wares from around the region. 

Combined with craft cocktails, local beer, handmade tortilla tacos, and a few surprises – from pop-up lounges to floral installation, custom embroidery to street style photo ops – people come to Makers Mart to connect with artists and be inspired.

Since Makers Mart was founded in 2009 by Trisha Rhomberg, it's become known for activating some of Sacramento's most interesting spaces and bringing together the Northern California creative community to shop local and support well-branded businesses.
