Shop ’til you drop in April as the Valley welcomes two cool markets for unique finds for the home and beyond.
April 20, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.: Mojave Flea Makers Market
The Saguaro Scottsdale presents the Mojave Flea Makers Market, which is “a nomadic market of makers and merchants from Joshua Tree, the Coachella Valley and beyond, offering the very best in handcrafted food, drink, jewelry, apparel, accessories, apothecary, housewares, furnishings, curated vintage and more.” The kid- and pet-friendly market partners with more than 25 diverse artisans, including AURE (plant-themed home decor); Cannelita Jewelry (handmade jewelry using naturally-shed Montana antlers and Arizona turquoise); M+A Naturals (natural beauty products for holistic living); Mojave Cloth (ethical textiles dyed with plants from the Mojave Desert); and many more. Plus, Saguaro’s own La Señora will offer house-made tacos, tamales and agua frescas for purchase.
Mojave Flea Makers Market boasts free entry and parking.
