The 6th Street Market celebrates community featuring over 30 local artisans, live music, and food. It takes place every Sunday from 10 AM until 4 PM through May 2017!
Downtown Tempe Authority (DTA) is continuing to answer the communities’ request for more local music and arts and have been busy activating downtown Tempe since this past October.
DTA is an exciting “non-profit organization that works in partnership with the City of Tempe to increase the value of Downtown Tempe through enhanced management, safety, marketing and promotional services on behalf of DTA members and other downtown stakeholders.”
Located in the popular 6th Street Park in downtown Tempe, the market is around the base of City Hall with free parking available at City Hall Garage, just east of the plaza.
Come and enjoy a variety of local shopping including: art, jewelry, leather goods, soaps, paintings, prints, along with many shops, bars and eateries. By showcasing these wonderful local artisans and businesses the DTA hopes to encourage a thriving and diverse community of artists and makers in Downtown Tempe and the surrounding areas.
With a fantastic and diverse selection of vendors, visitors have so much to explore including: Be You Jewelry, Iconic Cocktail, The Painted Ladies, GeNiA’s Art, Ahimsa Essential Oils, Noe Artisan Bags, Leetie Lovendale, Poof! Itza Gift, My Photo World AZ, Be Earrisistible, Black Lotus Wood Studio, Manipulations in Wire, Drinks and Crafts, Unique Wood Cutting Boards, Smoketree Woodshop, Aster Earth, Shared Intentions, Good to the Grain, and Daisy G’s Soaps.
Kick back and listen to live music provided by a fun variety of local musicians as you shop or have a leisurely Sunday brunch with delicious food and drinks from Caffio Espresso Bar and Hot Bamboo, the exclusive event vendors. Partake in a wonderful donation based community yoga session offered from 10:00 till 11:00 AM on the City Hall Deck (don’t forget your mat!) hosted by Yoga to the People.
