San Francisco Arts Market was an open-air arts and crafts market and performance and activity platform held in United Nations Plaza in San Francisco’s Civic Center region.
Hosting was open Thursdays, 11am-4pm from 2010 til 2014.
Independent Arts & Media and the Mayor’s Office of Economic and Workforce Development partnered to support the arts community and invigorate United Nations Plaza through a creative and supportive environment every Thursday.
SF Arts Market hosted a weekly open-air market offering local arts, crafts, literature, music and performance. The Market increased relationships with local artists and community, giving the community and beyond the ability to purchase locally made products and aid artists in their endeavors in small business.
The Market had hosted live artists, dancers, circus performers, and an array of music ranging from blue grass to dark rock, and more. They transformed the Plaza into a performance and activity platform along with unique arts and crafts vendors each Thursday.
