“An outdoor Artists Market brings a lot of fun to fall shopping. Even with all the art festivals going on, it’s great to have a place for local artists to set up “shop” and meet the public. For some artists, this is an introduction to the retail market. Town Brookhaven has a great tenant mix and close proximity to Costco so most people are familiar with the location across from a major MARTA station and near Oglethorpe University on Peachtree Rd. in the new city of Brookhaven,” says Patrick Dennis, President of the Atlanta Foundation for Public Spaces.
“We see the Artists Market as a colorful introduction to the Town Brookhaven property since it’s literally the first thing one will see when they enter. With artists on site for just 3 weekends, shoppers will have to look fast before it’s gone!” says Lisa Windle, Festival Director for AFFPS.
“We’ve built a great relationship with AFFPS. They put on 13 art festivals in the metro area so we know the art and craft will be lively and first class at the Artists Market,” says Caroline Peek, the Sembler Company’s Marketing Director for Town Brookhaven.
