Choose the market for which you are applying - they ARE different!

Both require the maker to be the seller. No resale items, manufactured, or direct sales companies. Both markets are curated by the market managers and invited exhibitors and creatives. 

The Market at Sawyer Yards - Folk art, funky art, recycled, upcycled, pet treats, designers, greeting cards, balloon artists, yard art …

First Saturday Arts Market - fine arts and high craft. (No candles, soaps, bath or packaged foods.)


Thanks for filling out our application - I run two shows - First Saturday Arts Market on 1st Saturdays in the Heights and The Market at Sawyer Yards in the Washington Avenue Arts District on the 2nd Saturdays. Both are daytime events Sept-May and evenings June-August.

We're Looking For
 
The musicians, like our artists, are all original. We do not allow any “cover” songs at the markets and performing musicians play their own music and own the rights to their music. Keeping it local, original and upbeat!  Currently what works best for us are solo artists. We'll consider duo's.  A PA, mic and stand are provided.

This is cool: your application will be made public in a gallery layout - audio/video that you upload and links will open and play right there! Everyone can vote too (thumbs up only.)  View the gallery here.

I do not post your personal info - those items are noted on the application.

Cheers!
Mitch
