Bay-Made Local Artists & Makers
Below are a few of the artists and makers that you can expect to find at Bay-Made. We have over 120 local artists and makers from all over the bay area represented in our store.

We are asked frequently if we work with artists of color in our store, LGBTQ makers, or if we actually carry work from Bay Area natives. The answer is a resounding yes! While we don’t believe in tokenism, we opt instead to find the best work out there, and because of this, our makers are exceptionally diverse and are reflective of our community. Truth be told, most of our makers are women or women-owned businesses, and we are so proud to share their work with you. Due to our understanding of our own white privilege as owners of this shop, as well as knowledge of the disparity of socio-economic situations in the Bay, we do our best to work with underrepresented artists & tiny “kitchen” businesses, but we do work with a few larger companies, as well.

 

Are you an artist or maker? We are looking for the best of the best from the Bay Area. If you make exceptional artwork or products, please fill out our ****** Submission Form ****** and send us an email, and if we find you a good fit for our shop, we will be in contact! Please note we have extremely limited space in our shop, so large items, clothing, most non-functional sculpture, and things without packaging or pricing will not be accepted. As well, items best suited to our gallery must be approved through our gallerist, and must be able to be hung with our system so as to not damage our walls. We are not responsible for improperly installed hanging hardware that is not part of our rail system.

Due to the high volume of submissions, cold-calls to our shop will be rejected--please use our online form. If computers are inaccessible, please call our shop at 510-520-4600 and leave your name and phone number and a very short description of your work and pricing, and we will set up an appointment.

We are so humbled by the response of those wishing to be in Bay-Made, but we want to pay everyone the respect they deserve, and we simply can't do that in a busy shop unannounced. Thanks for understanding.

bay-made dandelion chocolate

Dandelion Chocolate

“This San Francisco bean-to-bar producer makes artisanal single-origin bars wrapped in beautiful paper.”
— FOOD & WINE

Dare I say the best chocolate made in the Bay Area? When the concept of terroir makes it to chocolate, this is what you get--pure chocolate bars made only with single origin cacao beans and sugar. There's nothing like it.
