About the Market

Clover Market was born in the spring of 2010 to provide a venue for independent artisans and antique dealers to connect with customers who love to shop small. Our outdoor popup events began in Ardmore PA, just outside Philadelphia. With the support of local business districts, we then expanded to Chestnut Hill, Bryn Mawr, Collingswood, and Kennett Square. Winter and holiday shows in various locations followed, as did several popup events in partnership with terrain

After nearly 100 events, we have nurtured countless small businesses (with many graduating to their own brick + mortars), featured some of the area's best food trucks, supported local musicians, connected with community nonprofits, and created many happy memories. We have a vibrant and talented vendor community from Virginia to Maine, and we're proud to have played a small part in building a community passionate about supporting them.

Our mission is to amplify and support small businesses who bring creativity and uniqueness to our world through their high quality handmade products along with carefully selected antiques and collectibles. We are dedicated to showcasing beautiful, timeless products from people carving their own creative path. Many of our brands are from the Philadelphia area and proudly designed and produced in America. From time to time we also include products designed locally and produced via fair trade partnerships because we see value in that, too. 

The Market's name, four leaf clover logo and "Lucky Finds for the Home" tagline were inspired by the notion of a unique, one-of-a-kind find. We hope you find something special with us.

About the Founder

Hi, I'm Janet Gardner Long, founder of the Clover Market. I oversee vendor curation, marketing, and all of the operational details of this scrappy one-woman business. When we're onsite at our popup events, I'm supported by a small but mighty team including the incomparable Pat Norton (right in first photo above). I can't imagine a more steady co-pilot for the many years of pre-dawn wakeup calls, physically exhausting days, and crazy weather events (we've seen it all!) that all these years of outdoor markets have brought us. My professional path has been wide ranging and includes advertising, marketing, design, and project management. Thankfully, growing this business has given me the opportunity to use all three. I love learning new things and making connections between people. I value creative, independent thinkers and kindhearted people. I'm most proud of being a mom to my two 20-something boys, and I live with my husband and dogs in Chester County PA. I really love what I do, and I hope you enjoy shopping and visiting with us.
