Why is SJMADE doing something all the way in Foster City?

In 2019, we were part of the event through our sister company Moveable, curating and placing food trucks at the event on both Saturday and Sunday. We saw first-hand how big and how significant of a community event this is for the Foster City / San Mateo County area so we're truly excited to be able to curate and create the artist & maker market for this year's Foster City Summer Days event. While SF Etsy–the curator of the artist & maker market in 2019–has taken a sabbatical from events in 2022, we'll still be working with them to ensure that we can build on the success of the 2019 market experience!

We don't normally do things so far away from San José but we wanted to help out our friends at SF Etsy and, as we mentioned above, we really believe this could be a significant selling experience for artists & makers in one of the more scenic public parks in the Bay Area. We couldn't pass up the opportunity to help build this viable growth opportunity for our creative small business community!
