Artisan Market At The Collective
Collective Snowmass Après Artisan Markets will return for the summer beginning Friday (7-10) at The Rink in Snowmass Base Village. The markets will take place from 4 to 8 p.m. on Fridays through August and feature a diverse mix of original art, photography, collectibles, handmade jewelry, astrology, fresh produce and clothing unique to the Snowmass/Aspen area. Additionally, local-favorite DJ Tenza will be spinning tunes throughout the evening.
Snowmass Base Village Plaza and Events Manager Dawn Blasberg said she hopes the market will become a weekly must-do for locals and visitors to the area.
“We’re lucky to have such a great outdoor space and opportunity to provide local businesses with an outlet to sell a variety of items,” said Blasberg. “This is the perfect afternoon activity. Grab a drink from mix6 or The Limelight and shop local while purchasing gifts for yourself or someone else."
