Minneapolis Craft Market at Sociable Cider Werks

Minneapolis Craft Market is a community social hub, and an incubator for the arts. We believe the Twin Cities has a unique culture of creativity, and our vision is to provide a regular venue for both emerging and established makers to sell their work. Our market is based on the London street market concept, which is held rain or shine (or snow!). We know Northerners are hardy, so grab a drink, wear your best hand-knitted scarf and mittens, and join us for a festive outdoor market!
