Maker Markets

We work with our friends at 31st Ave Open Street Collective and Astoria Food Pantry to host a monthly market showcasing local makers in Astoria. Applications are closed for the 2023 Season. Interested in becoming a vendor during our 2024 Maker Market Season on the 31st Ave Open Street in Astoria, Queens? Stay tuned! Applications will open again in early 2024.

Representing Queens is something we take great pride in. There are endless opportunities across the city for creative businesses to grow, but for a borough teeming with people, Queens is deeply underrepresented in creative conversations. It's time to change that. QNS Collaborative looks to uplift creators by providing them with space to sell their work, promotion for their businesses, and a way for them to connect on a personal and professional level with their neighbors: all in our own backyard.

Our Makers

Since our start in Spring 2021, QNS Collaborative has partnered with more than 300 makers, artists, and curators throughout Queens. Some of them are veterans and others are just beginning to sell their work for the very first time. But each and every member of our creative community deserves a shoutout. Check out their work at the links below.
