The Makeshift Makers Market kicked off Sunday at SLO Brew Rock in San Luis Obispo.

It’s described as the ultimate pop-up experience.

About 30 local businesses came together to share their crafts.

The market always pairs with a local brewery or winery for the event.

This is their 14th event in just one and a half years since it began.

“It’s keeping your dollar within the local community and also its voting for the future that you wanna see by shopping with your dollar,” said Angie Boyd, the Makeshift Makers Market founder. “We are just about full body, local, community support.”

Organizers say their mission is to create an inclusive space for local businesses who can’t necessarily afford a storefront to connect with customers and share their work.
