Hello Future Vendor!

 

Welcome to Scottsdale's Native Art Market. Much like the already successful farmers markets and art walks throughout the metropolitan area, this outdoor event is seasonal and every weekend from October through March. This free event is located one mile West of Talking Stick Casino. We are open every Saturday and Sunday 9am-5pm within The Pavilions at Talking Stick Shopping Center. Address: 9175 E Indian Bend Rd, Scottsdale, AZ 85250.

Native Art Market is hosted 24 weekends a year and features 30 Native American artists every weekend. Equaling 60 spots every weekend and 1500 opportunities every year for Native Artists and performers to showcase their art to the general public. Keep in mind, you are not required to showcase every weekend. Once signed up you get to select what weekends you would like to participate in the market, so long as they are still available. Our goal is to the market diverse and ever changing for our regular shoppers. Native Art Market requires you only provide authentic hand crafted and handmade Native American crafts. All imports and imitation jewelry is strictly prohibited.

Native Art Market is within the Scottsdale borders. 5 miles from Old Town Scottsdale and 20 minutes from the wealthiest zip codes in Arizona. This cultural event is aimed towards attracting tourist and out of town visitors. Arizona itself generates over 22 billion from tourism every year and over 500 million in Native Arts and Crafts.

Native Art Market strives to create a unique opportunity for Native Americans to enhance and develop their economic self-sufficiency in the Metropolitan Area. Above all, participants involved have gained economic empowerment and pride in themselves. Native Art Market in Scottsdale strives to provide a safe and affordable avenue for Native Americans to sell their handcrafted items directly to visitors and local residences. These carefully crafted items include jewelry, clothing, performances, Native cuisine, pottery, sculptures and much more. Keep in mind, jewelry spaces sell out quickly.

Native Art Market works in partnership with the The Pavilions at Talking Stick to oversee that the Market only provides high quality authentic Native American crafts. If you have questions or would like more general information please contact us using the information below:
