Today’s Local First Arizona member spotlight is on Artisan Markets:
Now that a four day cold front is under our belt and the forecast predicts 70-degree plus weather, it's the perfect time to take the family out for a stroll along Scottsdale's Waterfront. Take in the Arizona sunset along the canal on Thursdays or enjoy a brunch at neighboring restaurants. The Artisan Market is a great urban marketplace that invokes the creative, artisan spirit. Voted as 2012's Reader's Choice Best Art Walk by AZCentral.com, Artisan Markets offers a unique opportunity to check out an array of artisan goods from over 50 local vendors. Offering a range of products from jewelry, paintings, children's accessories, wood workings, furniture, photography, sauces, baked goods, candles, clothing, re-purposed home décor, and so much more, this art walk is worth checking out if you're on the hunt for a new jewel to accompany your winter wardrobe or a new piece of art to hang over your dining room table. Or better yet, it's a great event if you're looking to click off the TV and enjoy the beautiful outdoors.
