and why we do

what we do.

What is F!RSTHAND?

Family-run since its founding in 2015, the series of summer fine art and craft markets that has evolved into F!RSTHAND Markets was known previously as Crafted Life Markets and The Art Market Lafayette. Still family-owned and operated, F!RSTHAND strives to put our vendors first, uncovering new sales opportunities and helping new makers navigate the independent market world.


Makers everywhere have been hard at work during the pandemic and are looking forward to getting their work and products in front of shoppers again. We're eager to make 2021 the Year of the Maker! Stay tuned in 2021 for exciting news about new directions for F!RSTHAND, too.
