The Beat Market

The Beat Market is an exclusively local artisan market with live local music, all curated by Durham Beat. In partnership with our local business partners, Locopops Dessert Cafe and Fullsteam Brewery, The Beat Market takes place twice a month and offers free vending space for local artists and guaranteed pay for performing musicians.

The Beat Market at Locopops happens on first Sundays from 1-5PM and features 5-10 vendors (depending on weather) and live local music (family-friendly event).

The Beat Market at Fullsteam happens on second Fridays from 730-11PM with 6-8 vendors and live local music.

There are no application fees or vendor fees of any kind to participate in The Beat Market. Our market is designed to bring the local creative community together with local businesses and the community at large at no cost to the artists whose efforts have helped to build and grow the vibrancy of our local culture.
