The Durham Patchwork Market

Come chill with us and grab some good beer at Patchwork Market!

The Durham Patchwork Market began in late 2014 to create a space for local vintage vendors and creatives to sell their goods to the community. Held monthly, the Patchwork Market has been a consistent event the first Saturday of each month. Fullsteam Brewery has generously allowed the Patchwork Market to set up shop each month. This allows for the market to be held indoors – rain or shine – and keeps admission free. The Patchwork Market will continue to grow each month and provide opportunities for the creative development in the Durham community.

Pop-Up Raleigh

Mushpa + Mensa are bringing the art truck loaded with tons of cool stuff to Pop-Up Raleigh. Shop vintage and handmade this Saturday (4/15) at Trophy on Maywood.

The market will take place inside Trophy’s beautiful brewery. They’ll have 40+ vendors with vintage decor, clothing and furniture, plus the very best of artisan crafts from around the South East. You’ll find something for everyone!

As usual, there will be food trucks and amazing beer from Trophy Brewing. Don’t miss this show!

Come hang with us.

The Bazaar

Mushpa + Mensa is heading out to Carrboro!!! We are excited to do The Bazaar there for the first time. Here is some information below about it!

About the Bazaar

Many exceptionally creative artists and craftspeople call Carrboro, or one of it’s surrounding communities, home. The Bazaar was born out of the need for a large venue where these folks can share their goods with the public. An inviting and vibrant atmosphere welcomes visitors into this thriving craft & art market each month. Locally sourced food/drink/music are also available for everyone’s enjoyment.
