Mainly Art Marketplace

Mainly Art is a free monthly arts, crafts and antiques marketplace that takes place on Main Street in downtown Bradenton. Several blocks of Main Street, just south of the riverfront marina, are closed to traffic to accommodate the market, where local artists and artisans make their creations available to the public. Paintings, ceramics, jewelry, and architectural elements are available ranging in price from under $20.

Mainly Art is scheduled for the third Saturday of each month. On these Saturdays it shares Main Street with the Bradenton Downtown Farmers Market, which showcases local produce, plants, and live music. The next Mainly Art will be March 20th, 2010 from 9AM to 1PM. Downtown parking is free on weekends, and dogs on leashes are welcome.

Mainly Art supports local artists and artisans, its major sponsor is the Bradenton Downtown Development Authority, and coordinator is Realize Bradenton. For more information, please contact Anna Pohl, Events Manager, at 941-704-4366 or annap@realizebradeton.com.
