Made Market is a marketplace by makers, for makers. Founded in 2015 by husband and wife duo Mike and Al Barker, Made Market’s main goal is to support small businesses and local makers! By offering a platform for these local and regional craftsmen, the Barkers provide additional access and exposure to their products! With Made Markets already established in Louisville, Birmingham, Grand Rapids, and Raleigh, the team decided their next location would be our very own Franklin, Tennessee! 

Made Market: Franklin was filled with a selection of handmade items to admire and shop for! Tables lined Liberty Hall as guests browsed the unique, handcrafted trinkets, accessories, decor, and more! These fashionable items included handwrought purses, apparel, and all different styles of jewelry. Shoppers left with one-of-a-kind pottery, art, embroidery, beautiful new fashion pieces, and more!
