What are Lowcountry Made Events?

Lowcountry Made began creating popup markets during the pandemic to provide a safe platform for makers to engage with shoppers. What we didn’t anticipate was the immensely positive response from our community. Our neighborhoods turned out and we saw a widespread desire to shop local, shop handmade, meet the maker, and be a part of the community.

Since then we have facilitated over 40 artisan markets around the Lowcountry. We strive to promote all qualifying makers as well as rotate vendors each month to keep things fresh.

Several of our popup locations are hosted at local businesses like Burnt Church Distillery, Southern Barrel Brewing, Lot 9 Brewing and private communities like Haig Point. Our monthly markets are located at city and town parks for consistency.
