Membership F.A.Qs

You have questions, we have answers!

What is the membership process?

The first step is filling out the membership application. Once we receive it, we will confirm that you fit within the guidelines for membership and approve your application. The information you provide on your application will be used to populate your business listing, and you will be able to login anytime to update or edit your info!

What is the membership fee?

There is a $15 a month membership fee that you pay once you’ve been accepted. We charge a membership fee to pay for the hosting and maintenance of your business page on the San Diego Made website, and all additional funds go toward advertisements and promotions of the website and the organization. The more we promote San Diego Made, the more your involvement in the organization will increase your business’s exposure, and we believe that we can do a lot more as a collective than we could as individuals.

Membership vs. Event Acceptance:

San Diego Made hosts regular small-and large-scale markets, and often times members have exclusive access to apply to sell at these events.

We do not, however, guarantee that all members will be accepted to sell at our markets. While we want to create an inclusive community for our San Diego Made members, our events are often limited in participation and specific in vendors needed to fit our criteria or the criteria of our clients.

We will do our best to ensure that we provide selling opportunities for everyone at every vendor fee price point, skill level, and experience, but feel that, especially for new makers, being a part of our community is a great way to connect with other creatives and hone your craft whether or not you vend at our markets.

Can I cancel my membership?

Yes! You can cancel your membership anytime by emailing bree@sandiegomade.org, but don’t forget — in addition to the benefits of being a part of a local artist collective stated above, you will get a business page featured on our website. You will also be offered opportunities to show your work at our events, and discounted vendor fees at our markets, networking opportunities and more!
