San Francisco’s Favorite Sustainable Marketplace Returns on August 17th in a New Location
San Francisco, CA, July 2014 —- The Bay Area’s favorite sustainable shopping event, Urban Air Market, is preparing for a summer pop-up show in San Francisco’s historic Dogpatch neighborhood.
This FREE event will take place this year in a new location, Esprit Park (Minnesota and 19th), on Sunday, August 17th from 11-6pm and will feature 100+ emerging designers and established brands, in addition to talented artists and musicians from our local creative community. Urban Air Market is also proud to be partnering with SCRAP, a non-profit promoting the creative reuse of materials that would otherwise be discarded as waste, to host fun activities for kids throughout the day.
Now in their tenth year, Urban Air Market continues to provide the Bay Area with a unique shopping experience that allows consumers to meet the designers and artisans of their favorite products, while making sustainable, eco-friendly and locally produced goods accessible to the public.
Just in time for the “back-to-school” season, guests of the Urban Air Market Dogpatch show can find the latest in locally made women’s, men’s, and children’s apparel, one-of-a-kind accessories, home décor and art that directly support their local economy. Guests can also partake in onsite activities including:
