One day. Dozens of artists and creators, all locally grown.

Since its 2014 debut, Bazaar, presented by Terrain, has put the spotlight on the region’s best artists, makers and designers, while facilitating the relationship between artist and buyer.

Last year, 100 vendors sold $119,925 worth of art and handmade goods, with more than 23,000 people passing through Bazaar. With – truly – something for everyone, this year’s event will likely follow suit.

Check out just a few of the artists and creators showing at Bazaar below, then head to Main Avenue between Post and Howard streets Saturday for the full Bazaar experience.
