Fun, Local Outdoor Markets You Can Enjoy This Weekend
If you're looking to shop this weekend, make sure you also try to shop local.
Whether you're looking for some new art to put up on your walls, a new wreath for the front door, some delicious jellies or sweet treats, or the perfect retro t-shirt you didn't know you need, El Paso has the Saturday market that has it.
The El Paso community has plenty of talented artists, local craftspeople, chefs, bakers, clothing makers, and more. Weekend outdoor markets have become extremely popular around town with many businesses starting to host their own or join forces to start new markets.
This Saturday, there are at least three different outdoor markets El Pasoans can enjoy happening throughout the day so no matter what time you have available to shop, there's a market that you can attend.
The El Paso Downtown Art and Farmer's Market is located at 117 Anthony Street in Union Plaza and is open from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. this Saturday. This market has original arts and crafts from local vendors, as well as regionally grown agricultural products and local food vendors. This market also has local music acts performing while you shop, as well as an arts and crafts table to entertain the kids while you shop.
The Chuco Town Market is located at the McRae Shopping Centre at 9627 Sims from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. this Saturday. This is a family-friendly outdoor market that features local artisans and has something for everyone.
Retros Monthly Market is back this month but with a twist- it's at night! This is great for people that work Saturday mornings and haven't been able to check out their market before. Retros is located at 3617 Montana Avenue and the market is from 4 p.m. to 9 p.m. This market has tons of great vintage clothing and streetwear for you to see, as well as local artists, glassware, and more.
On Sundays usually, the Upper Valley Artist & Farmer's Market happens on the westside of El Paso but this Sunday the market has been canceled. According to the Upper Valley Artist & Farmer's Market's website, the market is canceled this Sunday while they are repaving and re-striping the parking lot the market is held in. The market will be back next Sunday.
