"Market Day is a curated pop-up market. Since 2009, we have hand-selected quality, original artists and collectors from Des Moines, Iowa City, Minneapolis, Chicago, Omaha, Kansas City, and beyond. We organize events to bring them together with shoppers and everyone has a blast.

We started Market Day because we wanted people to see all of the cool stuff our friends make. We wanted our shoppers to 'meet their makers,' and put a face to the objects they buy. Join us! Market Day is free to attend and fun to be at."
