Suzy Ekman of Makers Market

Suzy Ekman Makers MarketWhat I love about Suzy is her consistent dedication to seeking out and discovering really cool American made products that are made by amazing artisans who use mostly sustainable raw materials.  Suzy is a real go-getter who while rapidly growing her online business by expanding into real stores inside of stores, and a few free-standing boutiques too, spends time coaching her vendors to help them be as successful as possible.  Join me and Suzy on her journey to bring American-made goods into our homes.

Makers Market hosts a monthly craft festival at Santana Row in San Jose on the first Saturday of the month from 12-6pm.  Visit this curated marketplace in Santana Row Park (across from Left Bank Brasserie) and shop local artists selling US Handcrafted goods such as jewelry, handbags, ceramics, glassware, soaps, candles and more.

Of course, everyone should come shop online at Makersmarket.us!

More about Suzy

Suzy Ekman has dedicated her career to American-made products.

Raised in the Deep South, she spent precious time in her father’s workshop learning, making, and listening to stories.   Trips through the countryside discovering potters, blacksmiths, and textile weavers, instilled a deep appreciation for makers who create beautiful products with their hands.

This early-life exposure, combined with decades of Executive management in US Manufacturing companies led to the launch of Makers Market.

Makers Market was founded on the idea of modernizing and keeping American-made goods alive for a new generation: goods that are authentic, well-designed, and sustainably produced.  Makers Market celebrates the resurgence of the country’s maker movement, with its nostalgic, general store vibe and online store.
