welcome to craftHER Market.
At #bossbabesATX, all of our productions are centered around sustaining communities that care about gender equality and supporting local, creative businesses.
craftHER Market is no different. It's been inspired by a few of our favorite things: pop-up spaces, traditional marketplaces and the people who organize others to gather. In its two years of production, craftHER Market has showcased more than 600 makers and seen 15,000+ attendees and 1,800+ applicants. Opening every Spring and Fall, the day-long community event features entrepreneurial panels, opportunities to support local nonprofits and family-friendly activities. Reflecting a myriad of women and nonbinary artists and creative entrepreneurs across Texas, all 115 of our seasonal exhibitors own their craft, and at least 90% of our booths exhibit wares made by hand.🎈Check out the recap from Fall '18.

Meet the Market's Producers and Partners
craftHER Market is produced by a team of staff and volunteer committee members at #bossbabesATX. #bbatx is a nonprofit organization that amplifies women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and community organizers. Our event series, showcases, strategic collaborations and professional development programs provide a platform of visibility, outreach and financial opportunity to 1000+ emerging women and nonbinary creatives, entrepreneurs and organizers per year. On top of that goodness, the public-at-large is invited to participate and learn more about how gender inequality affects their daily lives. More than 10,000+ community members annually attend our showcases, markets and dialogues—and in the last three years, our programs generated an additional $1million for the Austin economy.
This year's market was supported in part by our partners at Volusion, Tito’s Vodka and Fair Market. This year's in-kind contributors and supportive brands included Party at the Moontower Rentals, MY EVENT IS THE BOMB and Austin Woman Magazine.
