Shop Columbus Ohio’s Best Homemade Goods

Not Your Mama’s Craft Market is a one-of-a-kind Columbus, OH craft market. Organized by two long-time makers, NYMCM is 100% local and 100% handmade. 

Each and every maker from the central Ohio community is thoughtfully handpicked for quality, authenticity, and style. Our venues are selected not only to uniquely showcase our makers but also to inspire them and our thousands of shoppers. That passion for the community has made us one of the top 10 events in Columbus for the past several years.
