We’re excited to offer you a really unique opportunity. Be among the best of best handmade in Cleveland in a district built for originals. Yep, that’s you!

The Van Aken District is a new shopping & dining district located in the heart of Shaker Heights. We’ve taken over the most prominent storefront in the Market Hall for a curated selection of our favorite makers. It’s a really cool opportunity to be a part of a vibrant community of Cleveland’s favorite originals– and if you don’t have a presence on the east side– to reach out to an entirely new client base. Note that this is not an in-person market, it’s a retail shop! No need for you to be there, we’ll be merchandising, selling, marketing, managing and bringing more locally-made goods to Cleveland!

Meet your neighbors, here.
