Our Mission Statement

Our market does not thrive unless our artists are successful. This is why we keep our market fee low and our artist count intimate for each market. We each put in hours of work everyday to endorse weird and dark artists everywhere. All this being said, we would be nowhere without our community of talented people that make these markets, so thank you to everyone who has participated in any of our markets for the last year plus. We love you all!!


What is Market of The Beast:

We are a traveling and virtual dark art market for the weird, wild, & occult.

“Dark art?! What's that?” You ask.

No we are not handing out hexes and curses. We are an art market that features artists from around the world, who make handmade goods and art. Our talented artists create anything from taxidermy, bone jewelry and occult images to apothecary, pins, patches, home decor, and more. 

Are you interested in vending? Due to a high demand of applicants we are a juried show. This means vendors will need to fill out an application which will be hand selected by our team to determine who will be in the show. We have multiple shows a year in multiple cities. If you didn’t get into a certain show you still may be accepted into a different show in another city or a later show in the city you originally applied for.

Market of The Beast was started October 2018 in Seattle at the Unicorn Bar, but quickly spread out to Portland, Olympia, Tacoma, Everett, Eugene, Oakland, and Los Angeles. We are always looking for more places to do pop-up markets, so if you’d like us to come to your town please shoot us an email!


The Beasts:

Market of the Beast was founded by Heather Loop of Feral Hag. 
With the help of Alex C. of Pyromanced, Elise of Oakthorn Studios, and Chaniel & Alex L. of Lucifire Candle Co. we've created a traveling art market that seeks to showcase other talented alternative artists. We also have an official mascot, Peanut the Dog.
