space at these markets. You can choose which week you are able to participate, not all 16 weeks are required. It is important that your work be handmade, by you, a local artist. Whether it is photography, mixed media, writing, clothing, jewelery, toys, children's goods or anything of the like! This is to help local entrepreneurs as well as revitalize the arts community around the Civic
Center. The markets will run from 12pm-8pm every Thursday. Early Bird tents run
$35 and all vendors need to hold vendor permits as we are working with the Mayor's office of Economic Development on this endeavor. Please let me know if you are interested in participating, we would love to have you! Tents are provided, already set up. However, you would need to provide your own table and chair.
