We invite everyone to explore the offerings from these 40+ vendors from 10 Eastside cities. Don’t miss this opportunity to support and celebrate our makers, artisans, small business owners, and entrepreneurs who are creating, making, and growing their products across the Eastside!

The inaugural Eastside Made Pop-Up Market was launched in September 2023 in cooperation with Kirkland’s City Hall for All and Truck-a-Palooza event celebrating Welcoming Week – a national initiative that brings together neighbors of all backgrounds to build strong connections and affirm the importance of welcoming and inclusive communities in achieving collective prosperity. A second Eastside Made Pop-Up Market was hosted November 2023 in collaboration with the Renton Downtown Partnership.

The maker and craft economy, while largely informal and home-based has witnessed accelerated growth in the past decade.  There are currently an estimated 14,000+ home-based businesses across just seven of our East King County cities, a good portion of which we anticipate are part of the creative economy. Our “Eastside Made” initiative is focused on building more inclusive support for makers and creative entrepreneurs across our region.
