We create Experiences.

We energize Creatives.

We embrace Community.

The Great Lakes Market is the catalyst for bringing together gifted local Makers and the community that looks to embrace and support them. Come explore the creations of art, food, and crafts that make the Mitten State inimitable. Part architecture salvage hunt, part maker center, part culinary adventure; The Great Lakes Market has something for everyone.

It is our goal to foster and embrace the talent that resides in our communities and reach out in a refreshed way to showcase what makes the Great Lakes an amazing place to live, enjoy, and work.

We will always do our best to make things as easy as possible, and we will always work with you to ensure the best possible Market, no matter what. This is our promise.

    "We participated in the Great Lakes Market in Midland this weekend and it was a huge success for a first time event. It is clear that the staff put an incredible amount of sweat equity into promoting and making the weekend possible..and it certainly paid off! We appreciate the thorough communication and promotion of our business leading up to the weekend and plan on being a part of many more events moving forward."
