We're so excited to be hosting our third monthly Pop Up Market on Saturday April 4th, 5-9pm. It is being held in conjunction with the downtown Akron Art Walk which takes place the first Saturday of each month. The Crafty Mart Pop Up Market will be located on the third floor of Summit Artspace (140 E. Market St. Akron OH 44308.)

The Akron Art Walk is a monthly event where everyone is welcome to stroll (or hop the trolley) through the downtown art scene to enjoy the best of what Akron has to offer in dining, drinking, live music, and art galleries. The Art Walk spans across the Northside District, North High Street, and East and West Market Street. Our Pop Up Market--located inside Summit Artspace on the corner of E. Market and Summit St.--includes a juried collection of local artisans with their handmade goods.
Take the elevator or climb the stairs to the third floor to enter an open space filled with activity and conversation. Two dozen local makers will be there in their own booths filled with handmade arts and crafts. Hungry? We'll have food by Stray Dog and Three Sisters Momo. Of course, the third floor of Summit Artspace is also home to the studio spaces of several local fine artists and the Box Gallery. And, the evening's music playlist is coming to us courtesy of Akron's own Dance Dance Party Party. So you'll find plenty of excitement on the top floor.

Davis will be available to register participants for those workshops. She also promises 10% off coupons for studio classes.
Admission to the Akron Art Walk and the Crafty Mart Pop Up Market is FREE. Come and join us between 5pm-9pm on the third floor of Summit Artspace on Sat. April 4th. Please note: this is our last Pop Up Market BEFORE Crafty Mart's Mom & Pop Shoppe on Saturday, April 25th. Discover Akron's marketplace for all things handmade.
