Hines Brines was blown away by the entire experience. We completely sold out of product and reached new customers over the weekend. The Drake was a beautiful setting that allowed our product to shine more than usual. Thank you for having us and we can't wait to be apart of the next event.
We have participated at the Chicago Artisan Market several times and always have a great experience. Since indoor markets are on hold for now we decided to try Chicago Artisan's sister market in Oak Brook this year. We're couldn't have been more pleased! As always, Lynna and Jonathan were well organized, curated some great vendors and promoted the event beautifully! A Red Bird would love to participate again and again!
Jonathan & Lynna are amazing to work with. Awesome communication from the moment you sign up. A lot of times at such big events, you barely see the hosts. Jonathan & Lynna are always present. They are working so hard throughout the event making sure everyone is happy and going smooth. I love that. I was asked a couple times this weekend how everything is and they genuinely care and listen. They also put up signs throughout the market making it look so professional. During the load in and out process, they are both present in helping if you need. They also had a set of extra hands going around with a dolly asking if you need help. The vendors and customers are all so nice. The venue is absolutely beautiful. I am so glad and honored to be apart of this event!
The Oak Brook Artisan Market is a well promoted and organized market. From the unloading to the sales and loading up, Jonathan and Lynna (show organizers) knock it out of the park!
Great location and excellent turn out. Vast variety of quality vendors. CDC guidelines respected. Easy and flexible set-up times.
Oak Brook Artisan Market was one of the best shows I've participated in as a vendor! The load-in process was extremely easy and setup was a breeze. The consistent stream of customers shows that the market was well promoted! The amount of customers that attended was very pleasantly surprising since it's outside of the city. Everything was very well organized and the event was a huge hit - both from the happy customers we spoke to, and the happy vendors!
The shoppers were tremendous, and it was organized with consideration for all!
I have really enjoyed my experience at these markets so far. Jonathan and Lynna are great to work with and do a great job marketing the event and promoting the vendors to bring in foot traffic and sales. I will definitely be participating in more in the near future.
This was my first real experience as a vendor at an outdoor market. I loved it and can't wait to do another. Location is awesome with a wonderful flow of shoppers and talented artist/vendors. Jonathon was extremely helpful and such a delight to work with throughout this whole process. There was a really nice crowd of people who were eager to shop and support local businesses. We can't wait to be apart of the next market!
I love this market! It is amazingly & efficiently organized and it's an effective way for artisans, like myself, to get exposure in our local communities. This "Artisian Market" program developed to promote artists and small businesses, has an easy, online registration process; they offer invaluable directions, suggestions & tips for selling, promoting & trouble-shooting; each show/location has multiple load-in options, times and helpers to assist you! Lynna & Jonathan go above and beyond to assist all artisans and work together towards everyone's success!
It was an amazing, diverse collection of various artisian foods, crafts and wares. (We now have a great collection of hot sauces, peanut butters, seasonings, & topiaries!) The weather was beautiful (especially on Sunday) and many wonderful patrons steadily shopped throughout the day! It was my best show ever. I can't wait to do it again!
Your team did a great job - from planning to marketing - to enure the success of the event! I Had a great time meeting new vendors and networking. The overall experience was wonderful!
Oak Brook Artisan Market is one of the best outdoor markets we have done. The organizers are thorough, caring and think of every detail. The attendees are there to shop and appreciate quality products. We can’t wait for the next one!
Oak Brook Artisan Market is our favorite Chicago area show. It draws a really quality group of patrons who are interested in unique offerings such as our custom-made clothing marketplace, and they tend to support local businesses. The show managers, Lynna and Jonathan, always run it like a tight ship - good communication, support and creativity. We'll be back!
The communication is exceptional, set up impeccably organized, and the Smiths always follow up prior to the event and during the event. They actively look for feedback and genuinely care about the vendors thoughts and ideas! Love both the Chicago & Oak Brook Markets!
The Oak Brook Artisan Market is such a great experience as a vendor. Lynna and Jonathan really work hard to make sure everyone has what they need and they care that every vendor does well at each show. Their efforts to keep the July show on by moving location so everyone could follow proper safety guidelines was amazing and I'm so grateful. This was my first outdoor and my first two day show and it was fantastic for me!
Extremely professional, but laid back and friendly showrunners. Lucrative. An eclectic mix of people, both shoppers and vendors. Everyone seemed to be onboard with the precautions and were respectful. Wonderful setting and atmosphere.
I loved how you as hosts actually went around and asked how we were doing and how we did. A lot of events, you barely see the hosts and I love how hands on you two were. Thank you so so much for having me and so glad I found these shows! Thank you for all your hard work!!
The Oakbrook Artisan Market is one of my favorite shows to sell my work. Jonathan and Lynna do a fantastic job promoting the shows and the artists, and there are always high-quality vendors. The customers come to shop, and I have done very well at all the shows I’ve participated in.
Loved the great communication received throuthout the process of the event by the Event Coordinators. They listened to my needs as a crafter and assisted in making the needed adjustment. The Oak Brook Artisan Market staff are friendly, outgoing, and check-in regularly with you. This organization is enjoyable to partner with.
This was my second market with Chicago Artisan Market / Oak Brook Artisan Market. I could not be happier or more impressed with my experience. Lynna and Jonathan are kind, accommodating, and wonderfully organized with a passion for supporting small business owners and makers. As an out-of-town vendor it’s often difficult for me to gauge how an event will go, but both events have been well advertised, curated thoughtfully, and very community focused. As a vendor, I could not recommend these events enough. The shoppers who attend are as committed to supporting small businesses as the event organizers and are generous with their purchases and engage with the makers, which has been a great experience for me. My sales have been wonderful for both events, and beyond my expectations.
Very professional market. Unloading and loading was convenient and well organized. Customers were there to buy!
For what we consider to be premium events, we appreciate how well-run and well-promoted your events are.
We truly enjoyed being a part of this well attended and well organized market. The grounds were beautiful, and the shoppers were happy and ready to shop!
I thought everything was perfect. I felt completely safe, and there wasn’t an overlap of vendors, e.g. multiple soap makers. Beautiful grounds, the social distancing was perfect, and all the vendors are unique and top-notch in their craft.
