Thank you to everyone who has participated in one of our markets, both physical and online, and kindly taken the time to write us a testimonial. We really appreciate all of your support! Further reviews can be found here.
Best virtual market! And one that I hope to attend in RL one day soon! The lovely (and talented!) host Olivia really takes an interest in all makers and makes it her personal goal to make the market as well as the individual businesses as successful as possible. Through intimate makers chats, committed sharing and shout outs of makers, and an authentic approach this is my number 1 favourite market.

Well done Olivia for organising all the stallholders. It was great fun meeting everybody. I was delighted I sold a few of my larger pots as wasn't expecting to.
An excellent array of crafts at affordable prices. Pub location a fun idea.
Belinda from Made by Picnic

Olivia is a real champion of small business and the thought and effort that she put into giving so many makers a platform was brilliant and made the event a success. The Chats With Makers was also great in the lead-up. Again, giving people a chance to share their story. Thank you Olivia and LMM!

London Makers Market is a brilliantly supportive community of makers. I took part in the LMM online market and it far exceeded my expectations. I reached a wider audience, gained new social media followers and made more sales than I have at some London physical markets. It really was brilliantly organised and promoted and I would love to take part again in both a virtual and physical market!

This is a very helpful initiative taken by Olivia. My Etsy store sales have worked well for me as I am just a beginner and also got many new followers for my insta account. Thank you Olivia for all your time and efforts.
Carmen from Mystical Feathers by Carmen
Fantastic online market! Easy way to shop beautiful products and also support small business and amazing artists. Olivia’s support and response are fast and clear, her IG posts and website are beautifully done. The market also gave us an opportunity to get more visibility and gain new lovely followers and customers. As a bonus, it is possible to continue shopping and enjoy some discounts the whole week after the market. Thank you for organising such a great online market!
Lenka from Elytrum

A brilliant experience, I met some fantastic supportive makers, and learnt a lot about how to market my business. Olivia was very helpful and knowledgeable, she put a lot of time and effort into making the market successful.

What a very special event to be involved in. Olivia’s attention to detail and attentiveness to her makers and artists was so impressive. A fabulous, positive, professional online Market that’s just great for getting your work and brand out there!
Beth from Wilder & Wren
I loved taking part in London Makers Market! Olivia did such a great job at organising it all, she gave us constant support and it felt like a lovely community, which lasted more than just the market days. It was also my most successful sales weekend yet! I'd really like to take part again and would definitely recommend it to others.
Catherine from Bamber Prints
Really well organised event showcasing a great community of creatives and helping to promote small businesses! Could not recommend enough for all the support provided and exciting ideas such as the live auctions and chats with makers. Thanks for everything!
Philippa from Philippa Clegg
What a fab market it was! London Makers Market exceeded my expectations. I believe Olivia should be a business coach because of her amazing organisational skills and leadership. Her support from preparation all the way to the market day was so great actually even a week later she was still promoting us. I have gained followers and sold few paintings from this event and I can’t thank enough Olivia for organising this market. So what are you waiting for? If you’re a small business and want more exposure, fill that application form now! I promise you will have a great time while having that exposure you need and selling.
Alma from Alma Tipon Art
Pre-market, I was supplied with schedules, templates, experiences and ideas, to be as ready as possible on the day. Olivia was on hand at all times for questions, and very patient with queries leading up to the market. She was very approachable, and made me feel really valued. The day itself was very busy, and I thought the new auction element of it was a really fun and novel idea.
Overall a huge success for One Man’s Trash and a very grateful maker!
Anna from One Man's Trash
Olivia's planning and organising of the London Makers Market was superb and delivery on the day was seamless. All the content looked amazing thanks to the templates and examples she provided. The event was highly successful, with a wonderful range of small businesses and I look forward to participating in more.
Val from Discover Blue
An extremely well run virtual market!! I was a maker for this market and Olivia went above and beyond with the planning to make sure we knew how things would work, how we could collaborate, how we could support other makers and how we could reach more people. The two day event was full of content, interviews, raffles and much more! Olivia continued to promote us and the work we had done - building a great community on the build up to and during the event! I would fully recommend joining this market as a maker / artist! Enjoy!
Tom from TWW Prints
LMM is a little gem of a market. Olivia is the mastermind of organisation. Having participated in many markets, this one has been incredibly well planned, executed and supported. I learnt multiple new approaches and tricks from working with Olivia, who not only was super friendly and helpful but also professional. Highly recommend this market as both a participant and a customer.
Jess from Dottir Studio
My first time doing a market (virtual or otherwise) and Olivia made the experience super fun and easy from start to finish. She answered any and all of my questions with no delay, created a group chat with all the makers and provided constant encouragement before and during the market weekend. It's unbelievable Olivia managed to offer such personalised care to all 30 of us stallholders as well as organising and promoting.
It's clear she has a passion for supporting and uplifting small businesses. Couldn't recommend LMM enough for market goers and participants. Thank you Olivia!
Natalie from Faces in Resin
Olivia has worked so hard on the London Makers Market, going above and beyond every step of the way. She cares hugely about the community around this market and that shows in all of the prep work did with each and every maker. The market itself was fun and an innovative way for people to shop including a very successful auction and lots of great insta lives so that shoppers can get to really know the brilliant people behind the brands. In a time where shopping small has never been so important, The London Makers Market has given a brilliant platform for creative businesses to showcase their talents and provide keen shoppers an easy and effective way to get brilliant gifts or treats for themselves whilst supporting the all important small business community! Really excited about the next market in October!
