COLLABS

We love nothing more than a strong and loyal community… and we know we have one! Our customers are to blame for the amazing turn out & hype… in simple terms, they don’t come as loyal as our Mermade Customer is. They bring their friends, their dogs, their uncles, their sisters… and we know we can provide this amazing value to you. Read more to see why.


This event has everything a maker could hope to find in a market: community built around it, beautiful branding, and a stellar crew to help along the way...this event works to bring together a curated group of makers and shakers to please it's lovely audience. I can't say enough good things. - Jessica B. from Radically You

COLLABORATION IDEAS

We are looking to partner with you strategically! We especially want to make it beneficially for both of us. If you have an idea of how, let us know. If you are stuck and can’t come up with one, but want to make something happen, we definitely have ideas!!!

To start the conversation, please email Bethany @ info.mermademarket@gmail.com and expect a speedy response!


FACTS:

  • Our key demographic is families with teenagers fresh from the beach & retired couples coming in from a Saturday stroll!

  • Most of our Mermade customers come from within 200 mi of Dana Point, with random shoppers coming from farther distances.

  • Something physical like flyers & vinyls throughout the show…

  • Discussion of IG stories & posts so that it feels like our community & is well done.

  • We will not book other sponsors if they conflict or compete with your shop. Don’t worry!

  • Speedy communication with Bethany or our team! We are fast & like to keep the ball rolling.

ARE YOU A LOCAL FOOD SPONSOR?

In the past we have had local eateries willing to feed our 50+ vendors the night of set up (May 8, it’s a Wednesday). If this is you, email Beth at (info.mermademarket.com). We post on our IG stories about you, but can get more creative if you need us to.

ARE YOU A LOCAL PHOTOGRAPHER WANTING MORE EXPOSURE?

Each show, we have a photographer walk around to capture that Mermade Magic. We end up using those to use throughout the next coming months, but also during the show. If this sounds like something you’d like to do to help get your name out there, great!

Let us know with the subject line: Show Photographer, email Elise at mermademarketoc@gmail.com to see if we’d be the right fit. We tag you like crazy & send traffic your way. But we want to first make sure your style is ours!

ARE YOU A TALENTED & GOOD LOOKING MUSICIAN ? :)

Our Saturday portion of each show is lined up with some pretty talented musicians.. ranging from high school acoustic kids to bands that have been together for decades. You can play for a 2 hour slot & are given shop credit to shop the inside portion of the market.




Coming from San Diego, It was well worth the drive to Dana Point to be a part of this amazing event...It was awesome overall, and we would definitely want to be part of it again! Thanks again to Bethany, Elise, and their team for inviting us, and for making Mermade Market happen. It’s more than just a market - it’s an experience.” -Paolo S.
