1,000 homes (more or less) join together for a yard, garage, alley sale extravaganza! Discover Seattle’s family-friendly 100 year old neighborhood along the Duwamish River this Saturday, August 28, 11am-6pm, free outdoor movie “Up” at 8:30pm. Musicians, pirates, treasure, homebrew, Salsa dance party, fresh produce from Market on Wheels! It CAN happen in South Park, 98108, Cloverdale to 14th Ave S.
If you are from outside South Park or even in SP and want to to sell your wares at the market, come at 9am with $10 for your space rental. Bring your own tables and canopy. No electricity is available.
It’s gotten a bit little silly with where we are going to have the market this year. BUT, we finally have a confirmed location for sure. The City of Seattle gave us the official word last night that 14th Ave S, in front of Muy Macho, will be closed every market day for our Market. Yeah!
If you want to be a vendor, just show up at 9 am and ask for Carlos. The market can prohibit certain items from being sold in found inappropriate for the market and/or our audience.
While at our market, please remember to frequent our other South Park businesses as well.
• Buy your gas just a couple blocks away
• Stroll through the market with your espresso that you got just prior from Maria or one of drive thru spots
• Afterward, grab a beer at Loretta’s
• Take home pastries from Tikal Bakery
• Do your laundry while you shop
Discover other great things South Park has to offer. See ya this Saturday, July 3rd!
Just because the market is over for the year 2009, doesn’t mean we will not keep telling you all the things happening behind the scenes to make this next years market even better. So make sure you check in every once in a while and see what we are up to.
Right now we are gathering an advisory board which is meeting often to write grants and make suggestions and gather feedback. Then we start moving forward because to make a market successful, it has to be year-round at least in the planning stages. So off we go running for the 2010 season with plans to try and make this event weekly, have cake walks, more music, more produce, more of what you want, and even perhaps hours that will help folks who work on Saturday.
And as always, bi-lingual, multi-cultural and local resident vendors are the focus.
And a huge thank you to everyone that helped make the market a success, to the City of Seattle for our grant and faith in us, to our fiscal sponsor, to our neighborhood association who gave us insurance, C2C for helping with our co-op, our vendors who continued to show up even though maybe our numbers were small, and to you, who spent your hard earned cash supporting a true grassroots organization.
Why not do both?
South Park is the place to be this Saturday. Come to the market at 10am, shop, eat, etc., and grab one of the best spots in town for the parade. When the dancing horse guys are done and the leftovers are picked up off the road, you can wander down to the festival at the community center on 8th. It runs until 5pm so there is plenty of time to celebrate at both locations. The market is over at 3pm.
Or come, go down to the festival and then come back. Just remember the main streets are all closed for the parade from 9am to noon. Which means, unless you know the back roads across the south park bridge, you are gonna end up parking and walking. If you want to come to the market but want to drive all the way and have parking, then be sure to come after 12:30 or 1pm. There will still be lots of good stuff, art, fresh veggies and good food to eat. Live music from 11 to 1pm.
See you Saturday morning or afternoon.
Join us for our final market of the 2009 season. It’s that simple. 10am – 3pm.
A parade in town and a festival down the street. South Park is the place to be this Saturday, September 19th. Corner of 14th and Cloverdale in the Napoli’s Pizza parking lot. Parking available on the streets. But if you can walk or ride your bike, all the better.
