2nd Saturday Artist Market in East West Asheville accepting artist applications!

East West Asheville presents the 2nd Saturday Artist Market, to be held monthly (on the 2nd Saturday!) from May through December. The Market location is in the lot adjoining the Studios at Domino Lane, and will accommodate up to 20 booths. One booth per month is allocated for use by a community organization, and two for the host studios, so only 17 booths will be assigned each month. We're looking for artists, craftspeople, musicians and if you think you fit into another category all together, you're also encouraged to apply!

AVLEtsy members are invited to visit the 2nd Saturday Artist Market blog for more information and to download applications and other Market documents. Artists may apply for one or multiple months, and applications are accepted and reviewed on an ongoing basis, first come first serve. While we are concentrating on filling the May and June Markets at this time, artists are encouraged to submit as soon as possible even for later months, to have the most consideration.

Any questions? Contact Lori at
