From bazaar to beautiful, and everything in between.

We are The Great Lakes Market.

Placed in the picturesque venue of Uptown Bay City, come celebrate the turn of the seasons with this unique event with artists from across the Great Lakes Bay Region.  Shoppers will explore the creations of art, unique handiworks, and crafts that make the Mitten State inimitable.  Peruse locally made jewelry, art, crafts; clothing, flowers, and food and learn from those who craft the pieces we love.

We foster and embrace the talent that resides in our community and reach out in a refreshed way to showcase what makes the Great Lakes Bay Region an amazing place to live, enjoy, and work.We believe in the freedom of open and unrestricted expression of thought and art. That’s why our outdoor events are always free. For everyone, and that includes your fur babies. Seriously, bring them too; we would love to pet them!

To our Makers: you are why we started this endeavor in the first place. To you, this we promise: we will always respond to your questions, we will always try to make things as easy as possible, and we will always work with you to ensure the best possible show, no matter what. We are an organized maze of 12×16 experiences; The Great Lakes Market celebrates the thrill of the hunt and discovery of new treasures with room to stretch your legs and see what makes Michigan so awesome! You can check out our policies HERE.

Feel free to email us at or call 989.272.9939 with any questions, concerns, or if you just want to chat.
