The Art Market is growing!

Since our start in August 2017, we have worked with 47 creative entrepreneurs. We have highlighted the best in emerging and established artists from around the Midwest. In 2019, The Art Market is growing to increase our impact on emerging artists and makers. We have added a third market, The Art Market: Spring Edition, The Art Market at Taste of the Arts is expanding to include over forty artists this year, and The Art Market: Winter Edition is expanding to Punch Films, an expansive warehouse space with great potential to host many more artists, food and drink, and live music. As we expand, we want to help you grow, too! We will soon be adding an educational series to our market platform to share information on how to grow your business, market your work, and more. We have big plans and we can't wait to share them with you.

We are different from most markets out there.

Our markets are thoughtfully curated featuring well-crafted goods for everyday life. We consider your products, booth, and price point when selecting artists. In the marketplace, we position like-minded artists side-by-side to promote collaboration, networking, and sales from booth to booth. Find all of our past participating artists here.

Unlike most markets, we have an extraordinary staff and volunteer team providing outstanding artist support throughout the process of applying, unloading, and throughout the event. We are here to support you and ensure you have the best experience possible.

$10 application. $100 booth. Similarly curated markets around the Midwest cost a lot and are a big investment for emerging artists. We keep our market fees low to support emerging and established small businesses grow. We now offer a discounted booth rate for Artlink members. Become a member today.*

*$100 booth fees and Discounted member rates will be introduced for all markets after the 2019 Spring Edition.

Maker Praise

It’s a great group of people from the staff at Artlink, to volunteers, to other vendors, and even shoppers. I think the mix of vendors is well curated so there is a wide variety of items for shoppers.
The Art Market is my FAVORITE Fort Wayne event by far. The booth fees are very reasonable. The event is extremely well organized... I love the volunteers and the little touches like getting help with loading/unloading, snacks or coffee. But more than that, this is the only local event with super high quality vendors that are all locally made. On top of all that, you guys do a great job of bringing in customers who are READY to shop. The marketing leading up to the event is great and focused - customers come educated and excited about the items available. The Art Market brings in the best, most focused crowd for local artists/designers, and I love this event.
It was the most well put together and advertised show I have been a part of. Everyone was super helpful and made sure we were comfortable which is something I have never seen before and was lovely :)!
It was a great turn out, I really enjoyed being a vendor. I did really well with sales and I hope to be back!
It was an absolutely flawless, completely pleasurable experience. I loved it, the people, and had my best day ever in terms of sales, to boot!
