Third season of Horseshoe Market kicks off on May 5th | Arts & Culture
The Horseshoe Craft and Flea Market, voted ‘Best Flea Market’ by the Westword two years in a row, will launch its third season on May 5th. The 2012 Horseshoe season will also include a Summer Market on July 14th and a Fall Market on October 6th. The outdoor art, craft and flea markets will be held in northwest Denver’s Berkeley neighborhood at 46th and Tennyson (in the parking lot behind Olinger Moore Howard Chapel) from 9am to 4pm.
“As we start our third season, we continue to be amazed by the talent that exists in our community. We are thrilled that the Horseshoe is able to be a showcase for so many artists, hand-crafters and vintage collectors,” said Amy Yetman, the founder and creator of the Horseshoe Markets. “Last season, we welcomed over 15,000 shoppers at our markets. We think this shows how much people are looking to connect with and support the local creative community by seeking out products that are unique and handmade.”
The Spring Market will feature over 100 vendors selling fine art, jewelry, handmade accessories, clothing, bath and body products, vintage clothing and furniture, and recycled and repurposed items. Special Spring Market products include vintage bicycles, fresh cut flowers and vegetable seedlings. Fancy Tiger Crafts will be on site hosting an interactive "make and take" craft booth. The Horseshoe Market will also host some of Denver’s best food trucks as well as offer hourly giveaways for attending customers.
The Spring Market, which Yetman expects to draw over 6,000 customers, will be a mix of the familiar and brand new. “Each market we try to offer emerging vendors the opportunity to participate. We are fortunate that we have so many great artists and collectors offering quality products. Our vendors put the Horseshoe on par with any handmade market across the country,” said Yetman.
The Horseshoe Market is free and open to the public. There will be free bike and stroller parking provided by The Green Wish Foundation. Free parking is available nearby at Berkeley Park. Free souvenir totes will be available for the first 25 visitors at each of the market’s two entrances.
The Horseshoe Market is a member of the Colorado Festivals and Events Association, the Denver Handmade Alliance and the Berkeley District Merchants Association. The Horseshoe is sponsored by: Lisa Rundall Creative, Green Wish Foundation, Fancy Tiger Crafts, Helliemae's, Well Beings Chiropractic, MODesTEA, and Tennyson Pediatric Dentistry.
