The Hillside Makers Market, located at 931 E 9th Street, was founded by two local business owners, Barbara Bengtson (Perception Coaching, LLC) and Cara Overland (Lake Superior Scandinavian). It provides a place for local makers and artisans to showcase and sell their goods in the east hillside neighborhood. The Hillside Makers Market is open the last weekend of each month, with the grand opening weekend July 30 and 31.
The Hillside Makers Market is a “Pop-Up Market," which provides a space solely for makers and artisans to showcase their goods, without having the expensive overhead of a storefront or retail space of their own. The makers keep 100% of their profits. Bengtson and Overland believe this is a gift to the entire community.
