'Round the Fort - Pop Up Market

There's a new market in town, once a month, the Pop Up Market sets up shop on the spot where Friday on the Green does their stuff the night before. Magnolia Green - 1201 Lipscomb Fort Worth 76104

April marks the first market and they are getting lots of publicity. Channel 8, 360 West Magazine, FW Business Press and more are all talking the market up.

Creators are Jamie and Jason Brown of Arlington. Both bring their own skills to their new venture. And according to the FW Business Press interview... “We hope it’s a success for the artists and crafters and we hope Magnolia Green is a good, sustained place for them,” he said. “Retail space is expensive. Pop-Up Market will give artists a place to sell their goods to the public in an affordable way while bringing people into an urban area for something other than business or restaurants.”

The Fort Worth market will be open from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on these Saturdays: April 13, May 11, June 15, July 13, Aug. 10, Sept. 14 and Oct. 12.

Pop-Up Market is accepting vendor applications. For information on how to apply and other details, visit www.pop-upmarket.com.
