It opens this Saturday, December 8, 2018 at 11am. When you visit and shop this indoor market you will find locally made products whose sales support local artisans. Some challenges artists face when trying to monetize their talents are outlined in this recent article by O.K. Carter in the Fort Worth Business Press.

Learn more about the artists whose work fills the market by reading their bios when you visit. Whether you're looking for the perfect gift or a little something for yourself, you're always welcome to Shop Small®
