SHOP FOR:

... and more!

 Come see what independent makers have been up to during the pandemic.

First Light Market by Firsthand is the biggest, boldest indie market of the last two years!

We're bringing together an amazing collection of local artisans, crafters and fine artists to showcase and sell their work in a lively atmosphere of art, music and shopping!

Join us for THREE DAYS of incredible shopping on June 11, 12 & 13, 2021 and find up to 70 independent artists and makers. And we're introducing the Firsthand Boutique: a standalone, curated collection of special products by a selected group of indie makers that aren't otherwise present at First Light Market.

Welcome to the critically-acclaimed independent art and craft market called F!RSTHAND, where our shoppers get it First!
