Black Friday is one of the busiest shopping days of the year - for big box stores like Wal-Mart and Target.........

For over 10 years, Market Day vendors have come from across the country to take Black Friday back and make it a space for the handmade community. We pride ourselves on making Market Day a space where makers can meet other makers and build community with each other and Des Moines.
