What is the Local Makers Market?

Rockvale is on a mission to bring local Makers together to showcase their talents, artistry and craftsmanship for shoppers and tourists who are looking for something unique and Lancaster homegrown. By offering a designated market space exclusively for Makers once a month, local Makers have an opportunity to build their brand, establish a local customer base and network – all while showcasing their wonderfully crafted goods!

Shoppers are able to visit 60+ of their favorite local Makers all in one location! A wide variety of handmade, one-of-a-kind items will be for sale including woodcrafts, jewelry, skincare, candles, soaps, home decor, baked goods, crochet and fiber art, furniture, clothing and accessories, candies, jams and jellies, essential oils, wreaths, floral arrangements, special holiday and seasonal items and so much more!

The Shops @Rockvale loves our local artisans! With the Local Makers Market, Rockvale gives local entrepreneurs a platform to showcase their products. With so many wonderful vendors, don’t miss out on the amazing and unique shopping experience that is our Local Makers Market. Check below to see all the upcoming Local Makers Market Events.

This is a special opportunity for shoppers to see, feel, touch and smell all the wonderful goods our artisans have to offer! Residents get to support their local merchants and see items that they may not have been able to normally see, and shoppers get a rewarding experience by getting to meet the local artists. See below for Testimonials from our Local Makers!

The Yarn Bender

The market had convenient parking, easy access to set up, great lighting, pleasant and helpful coordinators. It was affordable and had a good turnout. It was well-organized and ran smoothly. The tables provided were excellent and the vendor spaces allowed for easy set up and plenty of room.

Scrappy Stitch Designs

I really loved this market! Everyone was friendly, and you can’t beat a 10×10 spot indoors with our own vendor toilet! THANKS! As someone who handmakes everything, I also appreciate that this show is a “Makers only” and doesn’t have MLM or direct marketing vendors. I would absolutely be interested in doing more Rockvale Makers Markets!

I personally loved having a wall space since I have so many products and tables to set-up. The girls were so accommodating, easy to work with, and just wanted their vendors to be happy! I loved working with them!

I like having a regular/recurring venue to build up a local customer base. This was my third appearance, and it just keeps getting better. Your staff is very upbeat and helpful, and I hope to be a vendor in 2020!

Your team does a fabulous job, and I love that it isn’t overly filled with vendors. Both vendors and shoppers have room to “breathe.” Every vendor was kind and helpful to one another, which I love! Thank you for giving me an opportunity to be part of this event, and I look forward to doing future shows with you.

You’ve got it down like a well-oiled machine! I’ve been happy with the location I’ve been in and find many customers are encouraged to hear this event is an ongoing monthly one.

Liked the local flavor of the event and the fact that, as far as I could tell, there was no “buy-sell” at the show.

Lancaster Chalk Shoppe

I thought the Makers Market was great! We had a constant flow of people coming in. Brittany was amazing and available to everyone. Don’t know what kind of space you have available, but I would love to be a part of an actual market there in the future. Sort of like central market or Lancaster Market Place would be nice to have something in our area.

Space was great, I have no complaints! I wasn’t sure what to expect, so didn’t do a huge display. But next time, I plan on utilizing more of my 10×10 allowance. Overall, I had a great day. Thank you!”
