The Show Low Main Street Farmer’s Market & Art Walk is the place to be every Saturday morning in September.
The venue, located right off the Deuce of Clubs on Cooley Street between 9th and 11th Streets, is a popular spot for residents in the White Mountains of Arizona and visitors to check out all the items that are made or grown by hand.
“Each year I grow more and more,” said Diana North, events manager for the Show Low Main Street Farmer’s Market & Art Walk. “ I have probably 60 booths and at least 50 of them are sold for the season.”
North said some of those vendors, who start when the market and art walk opened shop back on May 23, are selling local produce, pottery, wind chimes, olive oil and wooden toys.
They come from Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah.
“I call it an American market,” North said. “We’re not exclusive.
“We don’t just have one candle maker or one soap maker. Anyone can come in and sell their products as long as they abide by the rules,” North continued.
The market and art walk not only give people a chance to buy some unique things it can also be a stepping-stone for those who are creating the product in their home or backyard to make it more mainstream.
“We’re so diverse and open to helping the small business grow and get their product out there,” North said. “Our region needs small businesses and so we’re trying to show off what people are making in their little hometowns.”
A must see market and art walk with a very inviting environment.
“It’s nice because you feel like you’re out walking in the park and able to shop and talk to your neighbors,” North said.
