The market will be a short walk from the Penticton community market and farmers’ market, which take place on Main Street in the 100 block to the 400 block. The release states there will be a staging area at the ARTS Market where locals and visitors can experience first-hand watching artists at work.

Due to the nature of the artistans’ ground and table displays, the market will be a dog-free zone, excluding certified service dogs. A portion of the vendor fees will be donated to the Penticton Art Gallery and to BC Fresh Talent and its efforts to support the upcoming 5th annual Music Workshops in the fall.

For more information about the ARTS Market or to register as a vendor, visit, or call Denis Chaykowski at 250-460-2221.
