About Us

We have some exciting news! Marketplace New England is going to be going through some exciting changes in 2020.

As many of you know, I have been working on the team to develop a makerspace in Concord. I am excited to tell you that Making Matters has found a home at 88 Village Street in the Penacook village of Concord NH and will be open towards the end of January (fingers crossed). Bringing this non-profit to fruition has been a dream of mine for many years and I am thrilled that the community has pulled together to help the launch.

Making Matters is going to be an amazing space for people who want to create, share and teach or get support to start a small business. Art space, computer lab, 3-d printing, textile work, laser cutter, wood and metal shops are just some of the opportunities that will be available. We have lots of activities and classes for people of all ages and abilities.

These exciting opportunities mean that I will be focusing exclusively on developing Making Matters in 2020. It was always my intent that Marketplace New England would roll up into the makerspace when it was time. Marketplace New England will be focusing on doing the event planning at the makerspace. That means we will have lots of opportunities to bring locally made craft to Concord in 2020.

It also means that we will be closing our retail location at 7 North Main at the end of the calendar year. We are in full gear for holiday shopping with lots of fabulous treasures and lots of great sales! If you are holding on to a gift certificate- It will be valid through 12/28/19.

It has been a great joy to get to know you over the last four years (and many years before that at Imagination Village) and I hope we will continue our relationship in our new venue. I wish that I could have told you all in person but that just wasn’t possible. I look forward to seeing you all during the next few weeks. 2020 will be the start of a new adventure!

Marketplace New England, Inc. founded in September, 2015, was born with two goals:  to help emerging artists and craftspeople with a place to share their work and to provide the community a venue to find a wide variety of unique locally crafted gifts in one location, year round.

Our search for artists did not take long as New England is teeming with talent!  Gourmet food makers and photographers, woodworkers and jewelry makers, vintners and chandlers... our craftspeople are as varied as they are creative.

Every day there is something new at the Marketplace and the fun has just begun!  If you are interested in joining our team of artisans please send an email to Laura.

 

Fair trade for local artists!  What does that mean?

Marketplace New England works directly with artists and craftspeople to help them bring their product to market.  In our shop in Concord, NH and here in our web-store we have one-of-a-kind items and handmade crafts from talented makers who call New England their home.

Over 200 individuals and companies have chosen to be part of the Marketplace.  It is our goal to give you, our customer, a vast selection in one place.  A place where you will find yummy foods, local wine, original jewelry, candles, toys, soaps, fashion accessories, wood, photography, and pottery.

We also offer souvenirs to help you remember the wonderful time you had in New Hampshire.

So - if you are lucky enough to live here - support your local community's small economy,  If not, know that you'll find some really cool item here and maybe some day you will have an opportunity to visit our beautiful home!
