Coastal Makers Market

Hosted by Genetic Threads
We've rebranded the Bedford Fall and Summer markets hosted at Dewolf Park to our new name the Coastal Makers Market: Presented by Genetic Threads. We'll still be taking over Dewolf Park (and maybe some other fun locations) with our beloved maker friends (and hopefully some new faces!) but we felt the rebrand was necessary to have a dedicated space to showcase our beloved markets. See below for some of our market dates for 2024 (more to come) and to join our mailing list to be the first to know when vendor applications go live!

The market was fantastic- the location, the communication leading up to it.

Meet the brains behind Coastal Makers Market and Genetic Threads

We pride ourselves on bringing quality makers markets to Nova Scotia. All of our markets are juried and we try to avoid overlap between vendors to allow a great experience for not only our shoppers but also our vendors. We've successfully hosted six markets and can't wait to host more in 2024. Outside of hosting markets we also own Genetic Threads, a company specializing in creating quality handmade baby clothing. When we started Genetic Threads three years ago we found it hard to find quality makers markets in our area and resorted to trying to host our own and that is when The Coastal Makers Market was created! ~Ashley and Heather
