I'm Kimberly, and I've held a great passion for small businesses throughout my journey. It's a blessing that I've had the privilege to continue supporting these ventures through our brick and mortars: The Merchantile of Scottsdale and The Merchantile of Phoenix. These boutique marketplaces stand as a testament to the remarkable businesses that are here in Arizona. What truly sets our stores apart is the meticulous curation of each of our stores, ensuring the representation of quality products from the best vendors in Arizona.
Back in November 2021, I kicked off our very first outdoor market in Tempe, AZ. I dreamed up the idea of the Merchantile (outdoor) Market to give more opportunities to small businesses and bring our community closer together – it's all about that human connection.
Now, I'm excited to be back with a new location for our outdoor market! A place where there’s a gathering of local creators, dreamers, and artisans, all coming together to share their products with the community. What makes it even more special is that our outdoor markets location is a few steps away from our first physical store in the heart of Old Town Scottsdale!
Get ready for a total outdoor shopping experience and celebration at Merry Merchantile Market! Enjoy live music, giveaways, and delicious treats. There will be pop-in workshops for adults and kids, a kids play area equipped with a ball-pit and a bounce house, even Santa will make an appearance!
Embrace the magic of the season as a vendor or shopper. Don't miss this chance to be part of our holiday festival! Mark your calendar and join us for creativity, community, and celebration!
December 2, 2023, from 10am to 4pm at the Scottsdale Civic Center, AZ.
