Independent Arts & Media, the Mayor's Office of Economic and Workforce Development, the San Francisco Arts Commission and Blick Art Materials announce a new, open-air marketplace for local arts and culture in downtown San Francisco.

Arts Market San Francisco debuts on Thursday, August 19, in UN Plaza, and will run every Thursday thereafter from noon to 8:00 p.m. throughout this summer and autumn. An additional run during the December holiday season is also in the works.


Located at 1182 Market Street between Grove and Eighth streets, Arts Market San Francisco at UN Plaza will feature diverse arts, crafts and culture, including painting, photography, mixed media, literature, music, fashion, jewelry, toys, children's goods, creative home and garden wares, and much more.


Local artists, artisans, fashionistas, musicians, publishers, crafts- and culture-makers, and more are all welcome to apply for a tent space at the San Francisco Arts Market!

  • All exhibitors must be selling work that has been handmade by local Bay Area artists. The goal of the Arts Market is to help local Bay Area arts and culture entrepreneurs as well as revitalize the arts community and cultural economy around San Francisco's Civic Center region.
  • Tents will be provided and set up on the day of each Market. Exhibitors will need to provide their own tables and chairs.
  • Exhibitors need to hold vendor permits as issued by the Mayor's Office of Economic and Workforce Development.
  • Musicians are welcome for the performance area, but must provide their own PA. There is no budget for performances, but performers are welcome to sell merchandise and promote their shows.
