Summer Artist Market

The BCA Summer Market creates a vibrant and contemporary artist market in the heart of downtown Burlington every Saturday for the summer season. It is located on the lower block of Church Street, in front of Burlington City Arts and City Hall, within the pedestrian hub of Vermont’s center of activity, shops, and eateries. 

The Summer Market connects shoppers with a curated collection of local artists and artisans. The market creates an opportunity where artists can exhibit their handmade products to consumers and is a low-cost platform for artists to create viable and sustainable businesses and provide Burlington with a creative, diverse, and energetic market. 

BCA Summer Market Opening weekend will be Saturday, May 18, 2019, and continue every week until October 12, 2019.

The BCA Summer Artist Market seeks artists interested in contributing to the unique, vibrant, and exciting market. We are looking for artists who exhibit professionalism and quality to the consumer, have a clear brand identity, and strive for diversity in their product offerings and price points.
