6th Avenue Corridor MultiCultural Market

6th Avenue Corridor has launched an exciting new initiative – a MultiCultural Market! In 2015, the Market will run from August to November and will reopen in May of 2016 as a weekly or bi-weekly event. The MultiCultural Market features a diverse array of ethnic and multicultural products – textiles, artisan goods, food, and more! (Products will vary based on vendor availability.)

The MultiCultural Market will be open the first Sunday of each month (August 2, September 6, October 4, November 1) at the grassy lot on the southwest corner of the intersection of 6th Avenue and Washington Avenue.

As part of 6th Avenue Corridor’s core mission to support business development within the area, this Market will allow emerging entrepreneurs an opportunity to develop their businesses and customer base. We also hope it will provide a fun place for residents and visitors to gather on a Sunday afternoon – creating connections, celebrating the growing multiculturalism of Des Moines, and showcasing all the wonderful assets of the 6th Avenue Corridor district.

The cost to be a vendor is only $20 per Market and a table and 2 chairs will be provided to each vendor (if desired). We require no vendor insurance as our organization has secured a special policy that covers vendors.

For questions about the MultiCultural Market, please call 515-314-4243 or email director@6thavedsm.org. If you’d like to join the planning committee, we’d welcome your input and ideas!
