The Rock & Shop Market is a one-of-a-kind shopping experience; an indoor fashion, art & music flea market featuring emerging, independent local and national designers selling their wares plus live music by local performers.

Started in 2004 by Michelle Smith, a local designer and boutique owner, Michelle wanted to create a local market that would help support and celebrate the burgeoning indie arts scene of professional designers, artists and musicians in the Triangle and beyond.

Inspiration for the Rock & Shop Market comes from similar fairs around the country including The Renegade Craft Fair, Bizaar Bazaar, Portland Oregon’s weekly markets and Feria Urbana.


The official Rock & Shop Market is currently on pause, however, keep an eye out for smaller pop-up events locally and at Michelle’s hybrid creative space, Gather.
