Indie Mart is retiring!

Hi there. I wanted to thank you all for the 7 years of awesome shows and events. With the change in the marketplace, saturation of design shows and my own change of priorities in my life, I’ve decided to retire Indie Mart. It started in my yard many years ago with DJs in the bushes, me slinging drinks I made in my kitchen and vendors around my yard. I started it as SF was lacking places for makers to vend and luckily, now there are dozens of shows happening out there and happy to see that. So the need has changed and its a great time to move on to other projects. I have always run it myself, without sponsors and with the help of Nick Sass, Right hand man, and David Knight, co-founder of Workshop, and found it insanely rewarding to give folks an platform to sell, try to keep it affordable and not require permits so everyone can vend. I have met some of my best friends and amazing people through Indie Mart- most of our Workshop teachers came from Indie Mart. Though I am retiring it, I still throw events, will have pop ups and plan all sorts of fun things, so please be sure to follow WorkshopSF online or my Instagram (Kelly Malone DIY) and support our awesome teachers (all of whom are Makers from Indie Mart). I have really enjoyed bringing new makers, artists, food pop ups & bands to Indie Mart and the masses. I’ll continue to have new projects & events to showcase SF’s makers, artists, bands & DIY community- just in different ways. Thank you for all your years of support to the people involved and that it supports and of course, Thee Parkside, which is just the best little dive bar in the world. I love them very much and all the support they have given me and the community with this event. Thanks yall! See ya soon.Much love & thanks,Kelly Malone, Founder & Nick Sass, Right Hand Man
