Salt Market offers a unique shopping experience

The 6th Annual Salt Market


1010785_713715365339853_550863609_nThe 6th Annual Salt Market is an annual, offbeat urban market in Syracuse, NY. The Salt Market connects the greater community with independent artists and designers whose wares are not easily accessible otherwise. Many of the market vendors don’t sell their wares in nearby stores or other craft markets, making this market a unique event for Syracuse. The event organizers aim to create an alternative shopping experience showcasing innovative wares designed and produced both here in central NY and selected vendors from the Northeast region. This year the event will take place from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 18 at Sky Armory, corner of Clinton and Walton streets, Syracuse.

The market organizers seek out exceptional and innovative artists that are creating well-designed products inspired by contemporary trends. Value is also placed on eco-conscious use of materials, innovative packaging, and original business branding. Visitors to the market have come to expect a vibrant, community-based event; re-imagining all things locally handmade while enjoying local music performances and delicious food provided by local venues.

At the market you will discover a variety of high-quality handmade wares such as: Metalsmith, Glass and Enamel Jewelry; Letterpress Stationary and Prints; Hand-Pulled Screen Prints on Paper and Fabric; Organic Body Products and Make-up; Hand-bound Books; Photography; Original Poetry Books; Originally designed Graphics on T-Shirts, Bags, and more; Home Goods; Ceramics; Leather Bags and Accessories; Hair Accessories; Handmade Soap; Soy-based Candles; Hand-knit accessories and Hand-spun Yarn; Originally designed Apparel.
