AN OUTDOOR MARKET FEATURING ARTISTS + FARMERS + FOODIES
Welcome to East End Vend, Portland’s open-air market with even more crafts, food + farms to explore!
East End Vend is a small and festive outdoor market in Portland, Maine for members (of the Maine Crafts Association) and non-members to participate as vendors alongside farmers and foodies. East End Vend markets are typically four hours long, held on multiple dates, and offer a wide variety of art, craft, and other Maine products in a laid-back and community neighborhood setting.
East End Vend was developed in summer 2020 in response to the pandemic, as all other craft shows were canceled, yet, as folks began to adapt to social distancing it became possible to offer these smaller, lower cost, less formal markets outdoors.
The market is now produced by Shop Maine Craft.
