It’s Show Time!

by Stonehouse Studio

Spring means sunny days, warm breezes, and the Open Markets!! I love outdoor shows, the stress of dealing with the elements notwithstanding. Our area is very lucky to have three weekly markets where local artists and craftspersons can sell their work: The Boston SOWA Open Market, the Providence Open Market and the Mashpee Open Market
Boston's market is in the SOWA district of the South End. Located in an urban art district, the market has an edgy, contemporary and sophisticated feel. The South End Open Market runs every Sunday from May to October.
Providence is a compact and dynamic city. This year, a block of Westminster Street in the heart of downtown Providence will close for the Market. And after the Market, stick around for Providence's famous WaterFire. The Providence Open Market runs every Saturday in June, September and October.
Mashpee is the new kid on the block. In it's second year, it sets up in the upscale Mashpee Commons shopping area. It attracts tourists and locals who are looking for quality crafts and art. Mashpee happens on Friday and opens at the end of June and runs until September.

If you're a craftsperson looking for a consistent venue to sell your work, be sure to sign up. And if you like one stop shopping for a wide variety of crafts and art from talented locals, be sure to stop by!
