“Meet Tucson artists, take a peek into their processes, and buy locally-made goods! The Made in Tucson Market will be happening March 31, 2019 on Historic Fourth Avenue. This is going to be an impressive marketplace that reflects the authenticity of Tucson and its makers! Represented, will not only be established designers, but some new emerging artists as well! ”
Carolyn’s note: I went to this unique market last Spring, and enjoyed the creative, colorful local products displayed in booths/tables right next to 4th Avenue. I even found a carved cat figurine at one of the stores nearby the market. Check it out on March 31st, and Happy Spring.
artist is Audrey de la Cruz
