About the Market

The Sunday Artisan Market offers original, handmade work by nearly 50 artists and fine crafts persons in a full range of media from traditional to cutting-edge.  All work is sold by the artists themselves, giving visitors the opportunity to learn about the creative processes and materials used. Some artists even work and give demonstrations while at the Market.

For many visitors, the Market is a Sunday destination, part of a full day’s entertainment within easy walking distance — breakfast, lunch, or dinner at one of the neighborhood restaurants (Braun Court eateries and Zingerman’s Deli among them); gourmet grocery shopping at Sparrow Market; local shopping at the People’s Food Co-Op;  specialty shopping at Kerrytown Shops; gourmet coffee, tea, and goodies at Sweetwaters Cafe, and a stroll through the Historic Kerrytown District.

The Artisan Market was founded in 1991 by a collective of artisans who envisioned an affordable, accessible venue in which to sell their work and learn the business of “doing art” in a community with other artists. This original idea continues to grow and expand with the support of the greater Ann Arbor community and its committment to the development of public and private art.  The Market actively recruits artists, food and service vendors, and family-friendly entertainment.
