Pounding the Pavement for Five Years

Melinda Patrick, Blue Coffee Press, 2007

The Yale Street Arts Market, while not the most cutting-edge guys around, have made it to a milestone that is worthy of praise, 5 years of slinging paint in the Heights! Congrats, yo!

Celebrating 5 Years!

This Saturday March 7th from 11am to 6pm
548 W. 19th Street The HEIGHTS

For the past five years, the First Saturday Arts Market has played a role in Houston's arts community. Providing a monthly venue for emerging and established artists, musicians, jewelers and craftsmen to showcase their work, the Market has played -- and continues to play -- host to some of the region's talent.

This Saturday, March 7, from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., the First Saturday Arts Market continues that tradition as it celebrates its fifth anniversary, featuring approximately 60 vendors.

And, as part of this milestone celebration, there will be a special performance by Mariachi MECA at noon.

Heights 1st Saturday (which is part of the Houston Heights Association Business Committee) sponsors a shuttle in The Heights from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. which includes a stop at the Market. For more information on the First Saturday Arts Market, its artists, musicians, vendors or events, visit the website

The Market is located at...
