Downtown Art and Farmers Market Invites El Pasoans to Shop Small Business Saturday

The City of El Paso Museums and Cultural Affairs Department encourages shoppers to support small businesses by shopping at the Downtown Art and Farmers Market from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday, November 25.

“El Paso has so many talented artists and delicious local foods. Our market is a great place to find something unique for the special people in your life while supporting small local businesses in our community,” said Downtown Art and Farmers Market Coordinator Valerie Venecia.

The day after Black Friday is known as Small Business Saturday. Small Business Saturday encourages holiday shoppers to patronize brick and mortar businesses that are small and local.

Visitors to the Downtown Art and Farmers Market can find unique handmade holiday gifts from the region’s most talented artists and artisans. There are many gift options from paintings and upcycled décor to pottery, handmade scarves, jewelry, and other winter accessories.

Vendors at the Market Food Cottage will be taking orders for holiday treats and desserts. Kids can also enjoy a “make and take” Shop Small themed craft.

The Downtown Art and Farmers Market is located along Anthony Street in the Union Plaza Entertainment District. The market is a small business incubator that opened in 2011 to create a market place for local artists and food vendors.

Small Business Saturday originated in 2010 as a day to celebrate and support small businesses and all they do for their communities.
