Tag: BlogEvents

Is anyone else tired of the same ol’ stores with the same ol’ products? If so, we have just the thing for you!

The 6th Street Market is a Sunday event that hopes to connect the community with local artisans, entertainment, fresh produce and food creatives.

Here are three reasons to consider the 6th Street Market this holiday season!

#1. The 6th Street Market is 100% Local

Every vendor at the market is local to our Arizona communities! With every dollar you spend, the local economy strives and local businesses can continue to serve our local communities.

Did you know that, according to Local First Arizona, up to 4 times more money stays within the local economy when they are spent at local businesses?

FUN FACT! According to Yahoo! Small Business, over 50% of the working population are employed by the 28 million small businesses around the country.   

When you shop local, it doesn’t just help the economy, it helps grow a better sense of community and showcases the pride of a community!

Over 70% of businesses in Downtown Tempe are locally owned and operated. Once you’re done with the Market, it’ll be worth your while to go explore all the local treasures Downtown Tempe has to offer!

#2. The Market has Unique, One-of-a-Kind Products

Downtown Tempe’s 6th Street Market has a plethora of uniquely hand-crafted items that can give you that one-of-a-kind gift you’ve been looking for this Holiday Season!

The Market has an array of local artists, makers, crafters, food creators and local musicians every Sunday!

Imagine the satisfaction when you know the gifts you’re buying (and those treasures you buy yourself) are not only unique and rare, but come from Arizona-sourced creators that make everything with an extra touch of love.

Not only can you get your holiday shopping done at the 6th Street Market, but with every 6th Street Market purchase you will score FREE gift wrapping. Who doesn’t need that in their life?

#3. It’s a Jolly Time!

The market doesn’t just have extraordinary shopping, it also has pop-up events that make it even more exciting. There is something for the whole family to enjoy every Sunday!

With the market being set under the beautiful trees of the 6th Street Park, it’s a great place to come enjoy our beautiful “winter” days.

“Often I hear from vendors and visitors that they love the tree canopied location of the market,” Julie Kent, Organizer of The 6th Street Market, said. “While we have our staple vendors that are here all of the time, we also have new ones each week to keep it interesting.”

Selfies with Santa is back this year! On Dec. 15th, you can come take a picture with Santa by yourself, with your kids and even with your dog!

Along with Selfies with Santa, this same date will be our Dogs of 6th Street pop-up event! We will have doggie contests, prizes and special vendors to make you and your four legged friends glisten with joy.

On Dec. 22nd, the Market will have another pop-up that all Arizona foodies are sure to enjoy; The Holiday Foods Pop-Up. You’ll be able to explore different holiday foods from various cultures and vendors. Vendors will also have fun and interesting interpretations of some holiday favorites.

In addition to the pop-ups, Organizer Julie Kent points out that something “unique to the 6th Street Market is that there is live music throughout the duration of the Market.”

The Market uses local entertainers each week and this Holiday Season they hope to make you feel festive, merry and bright!
