The Market

Do you like collecting stuff? Then you should head over to The Market at CoreCon! As the name implies, the Market is the marketplace section of con. Our vendors and artists sell everything you love from comic books to collectibles to jewelry to handmade cards to artwork to whatever else you can think of! We guarantee you won’t walk out empty-handed!

You can get more information about how to become a part of Artist’s Alley or our Vendors on their webpages.

On Friday and Saturday, badges will be required to get into all convention spaces, including the Market. However, the Market will be open to the public without the need of a badge on Thursday and Sunday!
