April 8th | 12-6pm | Ponce City Market

WonderRoot's Artist and Maker Market at PCM is a monthly outdoor market located at The Shed at Ponce City Market, a covered platform off of the Atlanta BeltLine's Eastside Trail. 

The WonderRoot Artist and Maker Market connects Atlanta residents to artists, makers, and other creative people, such as yourself! WonderRoot facilitates a platform for creative people to sustain themselves and build relationships. This is an extensive opportunity to both expand your reach and grow your work. 

We invite you to take advantage of the culture and community incubated on the BeltLine Eastside Trail by registering for the low-cost artist market. This is an open-invitation; feel free to share! Please be aware we do not accept food vendors.

Vendors will arrive at 11am. Market is open from 12pm-6pm. Vendors must leave by 7pm.

Vendors are accepted on a rolling basis. We will notify you within 2 weeks if your application has been approved.

WonderRoot provides one 6-foot table for each vendor. Vendors can apply for a full table or a half-table. In the case of a half-table, two vendors share one 6-foot table. Both vendors still need to fill out their own application and submit their own payment to share a table. You may request to be paired with a certain vendor or one will be assigned to share your table.

$95(full table) or $50(half table) vendor fee must be submitted before the day of the market. Once you are accepted, you will receive a payment link. All vendor fees collected directly support WonderRoot's youth programs.

We will also feature two artists at one scholarship table(two half-tables) per monthly market at no cost to provide better access for underrepresented artists. To be considered for this opportunity, you must first submit an application to the market and then send an email to nina@wonderroot.org saying you are requesting a scholarship spot.
 Scholarships will be awarded on March 16th.

Submission of this application assumes full understanding and compliance to the responsibilities and requirements of the WonderRoot Artist and Maker Market at PCM outlined here.
