Summertime in the PHX

The temps are in the triple digits which means summer has officially hit us. Tourism slows down, folks hide in their air-conditioned homes, or go somewhere cooler to escape the unrelenting heat that punishes us every year. The craft shows come to a screeching halt or move out-of-town for the summer for this very reason.

Well, what if I told you that you could shop handmade items, eat from your pick of 5 different restaurants, sip a refreshing adult beverage, and listen to great music all while inside a beautifully spacious air-conditioned space?

Look no further than the Desoto Central Market in downtown Phoenix. They’ve started a summer market that takes place every Friday from 5pm-9pm and Sundays from 10:30am-3pm. This is happening all summer long dudes! I’m super excited to be participating this Friday the 19th!

I’d love to see you, so come by and people watch with me! Maybe have an adult beverage or two…or three. Whatevs, I won’t judge you!

See you there!
