Welcome to the MinneapolisMart!

I am pleased that Minneapolis Mart has announced its 2021 show season.  Our membership could not be happier or more grateful to host shows in a safe, friendly, and organized way. Our association began in 1954 and we take a lot of pride in decades as the region’s #1 mart. The MinneapolisMart is a self-governing membership of multi-line entrepreneurs, and that sets us apart from any other gift mart in the country. Together, we have worked to create an environment that is key in helping our retailers get back to business after the devastating effects of the pandemic. We find ourselves especially relevant now as buyers have cut back on travel to national shows and are seeking out a safe onsite buying experience that is close to home. We are here to help you adapt to the changing buying patterns we are experiencing and to seek the next opportunity.

We are honored to be open for stores who travel from all over the upper Midwest, and beyond, to experience gifts, apparel, garden, seasonal, tabletop, gourmet, etc all under one roof.  We specialize in regional brands that cannot be found anywhere else! Seeing the new items, designs, and colors in person and having the opportunity to work with vendors and reps will always endure

The MinneapolisMart is looking forward to a new year connecting with new and returning buyers.  See you at the shows!
