Support North Beach Essentials

Local Maker Mart is an emerging hub for local art, education, events, and professional collaboration in the heart of San Francisco. What started as a pop-up in November of 2019 quickly gained traction from within the North Beach community, and unprecedented support from the city of San Francisco and local business associations: it quickly became a project with real long term potential...

...And then the Covid-19 epidemic happened, and, almost overnight, all public-facing, non-essential goods and services all shut down. 

In the spirit of perseverance, adaptation, and creativity, we are rapidly working to implement strategies to allow us to continue serving our creative and local communities through virtual marketplaces and live streaming services. 

We can't do this without your support! 

Your contributions will allow us to purchase the necessary production equipment and labor to create an immersive, 3D online storefront, professionally produced live stream content, podcasts, and unique remote event experiences.

For our entire team here at Local Maker Mart, this project has been a dream come true. We love working together and showcasing the visionary artistry from within our community, and shouting from the rooftops that the arts are not dead or dying, but thriving and evolving. Your contributions will be received with more gratitude than words could ever express but will be answered by our most sincere thanks and gratitude.

Contributors (donations up to $100) will have their names on a digital billboard with a big THANK YOU!

Donors ($100-500) will have the option to have their name and photo on our digital billboard, and we will make you a VIP at all post-pandemic events plus provide you free keys for our soon to launch Livestream content. 

Benefactors ($500+) will have the same option as donors, and we'll throw you a thank you party when the Covid-19 Quarantine is lifted with open bar, headliners, and more. 

Corporate Sponsors: ($2000+) All the above benefits and we will run your ad's on our LED wall now and provide huge discounts even when traffic and business return to normal. (A HUGE SAVINGS) 

Help us keep the dream alive and our doors open! Support Small business, Education, local artists, musicians, our staff and our community... 

We pay many things forward and we humbly ask for this assistance in our time of need.
