Six Markets...Six Months

Sure doesn't seem that long. Six Markets now, Six times we've all come together to show what we can do as Artists, Growers and Patrons. What a time we've had. Its always gotten better, the Market improves every time. Starting with our core of Artists...adding the Growers to the family, This Market we had Dancers- Thank you Fiesta Del Sol Ballet Folklorico- Musicians- Thank You Wade Parks, Jerry Slater and Bill Porter. What will be the next step? Who knows, it is an evolving concept. What we do know is that it is one of the most exciting events in Downtown Lubbock...more people discover it every month and it is just plain fun. We have as much fun putting it on as the people that support it.

In November...Friday the 13th. the first Moonlight Market, a preview night before the DAM on the 14th. A stroll through to see the wares our Artists have for the gift giving season. Stay tuned here for further info...or follow us on Facebook- The Downtown Art Market,

We...Tony, Jennifer, Colorado Bob. Fish and Myself want all of y'all to know this is a labor of Love and Respect for us. The love of community-the neighborhood- the love of Art and the respect for our vendors, and our business neighbors. The respect we have for our supporters-The Lubbock Arts Alliance...The Avalanche Journal...every customer we have is a supporter. All we ask is that you help us spread the good word...good things happen Downtown every second Saturday.

Great job everyone despite the brisk-crisp weather-it was another great day. Here is a great big Atta' Boy to all.

Larry Simmons...for all of us.
