A series of 6 meetings between now and 25 June will introduce this new system to growers and makers.Â If you are a local grower, maker or artist you will be able to have a virtual stall and sell locally on the Â ’Makerhood’ site or advertise workshops and courses.
I am very excited about this development of a local online marketplace as I am sure there is a good market for locally made goods. This system will link up producers with those locally-minded customers.Â I think this will also work if you only produce things from time to time, or seasonally, such as when you have a glut of tomatoes.
If you’re interested, do try to make one of the meetings listed below.
Also, if anyone goes and would like to write a short article for us for the website, do get in contact (firstname.lastname@example.org). Just a couple of paragraphs would be great. Thanks.

Do you make things, food or art? Would you like to sell locally online? Come to Makerhood Brixton Maker’s Meetings.
Makerhood Brixton is a social enterprise promoting local making and sustainable local economy.Â We are working on a marketplace for Brixton, Herne Hill, Clapham, Stockwell, Camberwell and Dulwich, to enable makers sell their products locally, and to advertise workshops and courses. the basic infrastructure is now ready, and we are holding Makers’ Meetings for anyone who’d like to join up.
If you™re a local maker, artist or grower, these meetings will give you the chance to:
- learnÂ how the site will work and set up a test stall
- discuss commercial and legal issues around selling online
