30 Craft Market is a handmade/hand-altered goods show that also welcomes small press/self-published literature, prints of one's original artwork, and photography in Peterborough and Toronto, Ontario.
In 30 Craft Market -- a moderately juried show -- at least 1/2 the items for sale are $30 or less.
The show offers the creations of local artisans, crafters, artists, photographers, and authors for purchase.
Our primary purposes are to provide artisans with a low-cost opportunity to gain direct exposure to the community, connect with the community, and/or sell their creations. We also strive to give residents an opportunity to support their local arts community. All items are handmade, hand-altered, or self-authored by the vendors or their close relatives.
We also provide free buying/selling/swapping forums as well as craft vendor support on Facebook:

Jurying was implemented as of May, 2013. 30 Craft Market has occurred in Peterborough 11 times. As of July 8, 2015, 30 Craft Market expanded to welcome authors' work as well (small presses, self-publishing). 30 Craft Market will be returned to Toronto in October of 2015.
