is a specialty pop-up market featuring an eclectic mix of local artisans from Portland and the Pacific Northwest.
Our focus is to showcase the best wares from occult, sci-fi, goth, mystical, and nature inspired aesthetics and growing the creepy community.
We offer a reduced booth fee to our vendors that is solely used to promote and run the market to offer them the most opportunity to make money.
The market is run by The Coven of Curiosity and other amazing volunteers and relies on vendor fees or sponsorships to run our market.
Our venue partners generously provide their space and resources to host our markets.
