Many years ago...
(well, not THAT many years), we were college roommates and never could have predicted where we'd be today. Although we pursued different career paths after graduating, we remained close friends. Eventually, we both found ourselves yearning for more creativity in our professional lives and decided to team up. After much brainstorming, URBNmarket was born!
Our first market was held on May 18th, 2014, at the BCC Rescue Squad in Bethesda, Maryland.
We were inspired by other handmade and vintage markets outside the DC area. Our curated markets showcase amazing makers, creators, collectors, and designers, giving our customers a unique shopping experience. These last several years have been so much fun -- it is so great to work with and get to know such talented individuals. And what a great perk for us to shop while we work! If you haven't already, we hope you will join us at our next market, meet our incredible vendors and make some one-of-a-kind purchases of your own!
