Founded in 2010 by interior designer Kristin Montgomery and writer, historian & artist Amy Pence-Brown, our Markets have been built on the foundation of the DIY Spirit – empowering the artists of our area – as well as the regional community who support them. We pride ourselves on carefully curating the show to include brand new artists whose work you’ll be surprised and excited to see as well as seasoned favorites. For the past ten years we have curated a plethora of unique quality artisans in Wintry Market, an upscale indie handmade for the holidays art and craft bazaar. For one weekend each November over 100 of the best makers in Idaho and beyond have come together to celebrate small businesses and local artists while selling their goods in a public event downtown Boise over the course of one weekend. Thousands of people make their way through the festive market kicking off the holiday season, enjoying coffees and cocktails while they mingle and shop. From hand-forged jewelry to hand-painted dolls, letter-pressed prints to lotions, and macramé to woodcarvings, the artworks are diverse and extraordinary. We’re honored to have become one of the biggest and best indie art and craft fairs around (Wintry Market was named Best Holiday Bazaar in Idaho by Food & Wine Magazine in 2017!).
In 2018 we launched Summery Market, a handmade & vintage for the sunny days sister to our beloved Wintry Market. There you can find some of the most talented makers and creative entrepreneurs of our region – a unique collection of the best and brightest. You will find artists that are dedicated to their craft and shoppers eager to shop locally not only during the holiday season, but all year round.
