/Ryan Wyrick's postcard design for The Market

This Saturday June 11th, escape the mundanity of weekend traditions and head out into the sunshine to enjoy The Market presented by Avenue for the arts. Sound good? How can it not! With sidewalks filled by quality vendors, musicians and art-enthusiasts, the Heartside area invites you to join in on a celebration of creativity and community.


The Market features a variety of vendors: some of which have been participating for years, while others may be about to sell their first handmade good. Regardless, The Market offers a unique, all-inclusive atmosphere for both local artists and the general public. Ryan Wyrick, a frequent participant of The Market, has designed this year’s first postcard (featured). Pick up your own copy at a local downtown business, or stop by The Market from 4 – 9 on Saturday to check out his work and meet him in person! Markets will continue to occur on the second Saturday of every month throughout the summer – and in conjunction, postcards by our awesome vendors will continue to be released. Collect em’ all. Better yet, attend them all! Similar to each postcard, each Market is different. Come celebrate the summer months with the Heartside community, you won’t regret it.
