Designers Marketplace Pop-Up Shop

Since November last year the Designers Marketplace has moved on and developed faster than we could have imagined. With a following of over 80 super talented artists and designers some travelling as far from London, Edinburgh, Derbyshire and Cumbria just to attend. Plans are now underway to expand the opportunities provided to the loyal followers of the market.

Designers Marketplace is planning a move into retail under the new scheme and concept of 'pop-up shop'. In addition to the markets which currently run on a quarterly basis, the more permanent space will be within Middlesbrough town centre and sell works by artists and designers from around the region. Products on sale will be exclusive to non-commercial designer maker products and artwork.
The shop will also be used as a gallery space with rotational exhibitions on a regular basis, again representing local artsists, illustrators and photographers. Developments will be underway before the end of the year.

If you are interested in selling work through the new static format of the market, please email: Helen Stevens at
