Broad Street Bazaar This Saturday!

There's a new monthly market debuting this weekend, and it's in Mid-City, right down the street from where I live: the Broad Street Bazaar. Set to happen the fourth Saturday of each month in the old Roberts parking lot at the corner of Broad and Bienville from 10am - 3pm, its stated mission is "to help revitalize the historic Broad St. corridor and link to the Bayou Rd. development district, which has a Fresh Market every 4th Saturday."

What will you find at this market? Flea market vendors; artists, designers and crafters who work with recycled materials; light brunch by Ruby Slipper Cafe; music by the DeSoto St. Band; free Tulane Community Health screenings; a Phoenix recycling station; voter registration; and even personal services like braiding and massage. So far there are 27 vendors signed up, with more being added every day. And from perusing the vendor list so far, it's feeling a lot like the old Mermaid Market, which I always loved both participating in and also shopping at. Except, we'll have a lot more room to spread out in!

Yes, it is at the same time as the Arts Council market at Palmer Park, but who says you can't attend more than one market in a day? They aren't all that far from each other, and at Broad Street, you'll get a mix of art, craft and flea market stuff and be supporting Mid-City and the Broad Street corridor.

Most importantly, I'll be there with a lot of my stuff, including record clocks, an assortment of t-shirts (hopefully including some of my new NOLA Rising and Obama t's), some mixed media pieces, and art prints of some of my popular designs. It's my first market since I've been back in New Orleans, thanks to Gustav and Ike madness, so I'm really excited. So please come see me!
