[ARCHIVED] City’s Victoria Main Street Program to host 1st Artisan Market

Artisan Market. 21st of November, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. 200 S. Main St. behind The Box Coffee.

Residents will be able to shop for art and handmade creations while enjoying food and live music at the City of Victoria Main Street Program’s new monthly Artisan Market starting Nov. 21.

Danielle_Williams“We’ve had many requests for more art in downtown Victoria, and local artists have expressed interest in having an event like this,” said Main Street Program Director Danielle Williams. “It also gives residents a chance to find unique gift items right before December.”

The Artisan Market will be hosted the third Saturday of each month from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the 200 block of South Main Street. The market will feature live music performances starting with the Take 3 Jazz Trio on Nov. 21. Williams eventually plans to include live art events, such as art demonstrations or hands-on activities for children, and is discussing this possibility with local artists.

Williams said she was inspired by Main Street Market Days, an event that was hosted by the Main Street Program in DeLeon Plaza before the program was managed by the City. However, while vendors at Main Street Market Days sold “anything and everything,” the new market will be focused on art and handmade goods.

Event attendees will be required to wear face masks when not eating, and signage will be placed at the event to remind attendees to maintain a safe distance from others. Vendor booths will be spaced apart to encourage social distancing, and hand sanitizer will be available.

Residents who are in the mood for more live music can come to DeLeon Plaza for Tunes at Noon, also hosted by the Victoria Main Street Program, featuring a different local performer every Friday. The series kicked off Nov. 6 with Jerry James.

“Having these kinds of events will help our community feel more connected to downtown,” Williams said. “We hope residents will come enjoy the nice weather we’ve been having and see what downtown has to offer.”

Williams is seeking art and food vendors for the market. To apply, call 361-485-3060 or visit www.victoriatx.gov/mainstreet and click on “Artisan Market.”
