Small Business Saturday sees makers, artists thriving in Phoenix area

A busy Small Business Saturday in downtown Phoenix saw an Indigenous market and some of the Valley’s best examples of handmade gifts, treats and art that countered mass-produced goods sold on Black Friday and Cyber Monday.

The Phoenix Flea Market was the first to open on Saturday and saw a large crowd of shoppers filling Heritage Square and the Science Park to near shoulder-to-shoulder crowds in some areas.

Spectators appeared as trendy as the vintage pieces of clothing and customized jewelry alongside illustrations and artwork of all styles and variations.

A line for $5 entry backed up into a series of food trucks and vendors set up just outside the entrance. One of them was Golden Desert Boutique, owned and operated by Taylor Norris.
