We support, promote and bring together small businesses and emerging brands. At the core, we organize an annual market event centered around shopping amazing and unique products while also having a chance to hear the stories and meet the people behind these brands. On top of that, it's an opportunity to sip local spirits, eat from local food trucks and join us in supporting each other so we all succeed.
The HAMMS Event differentiator is that we are set up as a crowd funding event. The crowd funding comes from the attendees, who pay a small fee to get in the door ($10 online and $15 day of event). Your collective support grouped together adds up and is awarded to one of the juried vendors at random. Every year for the past three years we have raised $5000 in HAMMS Event ticket sales and donations then given to one of the Makers to help them bring their business to the next level.
