Downtown Bend Artisans Market is open on Saturdays from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm
The first Downtown Bend Artisans Market formerly Central Oregon Saturday Market was held in May 1974. Today the Downtown Bend Artisans Market provides advertising, promotion, and a colorful, diversified open-air marketplace in Downtown Bend to display and sell their wares on summer Saturdays. Local people and visitors enjoy shopping, choosing lunch from the food vendors, browsing the variety of craft booths and local farm-fresh products. There is also an annual Holiday Show.
The Downtown Bend Artisans Market is located in the School Administration Building’s parking lots across from the Downtown Bend Public Library and is open Saturdays from Memorial Day weekend May 28, 2022 through Sept. 4Th. On Labor Day & Memorial Day Weekends, the Downtown Bend Artisans Market will be open Saturday and Sunday with the hours of 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM. Members must be set up and ready to sell before 8:30 AM. Artisans and Crafters are required to stay set up until 3:00 PM or their membership could be voided and not asked back. If an artisan or crafter sells out before the closing time, they must leave their set up until 3:00 pm so as to not disrupt customers and the sales of other vendors. Fresh produce vendors may leave when they are totally sold out if they choose and if it will not upset the rest of the Market.
Downtown Bend Artisans Market's Holiday Show has its own Committee. Each year suggestions are taken from the members regarding the dates, times, and place. All the costs plus advertising and any other details are reported to the Board for final approval.
