This summer, Upper Valley Artist & Farmers Market will open a brick-and-mortar shop in West El Paso featuring 100% local artisans.

Emerging as one of El Paso's leading farmers' markets, Upper Valley Artist & Farmers Market has continued to survive the ongoing pandemic. It has also brought to fruition its goal of opening a storefront featuring local artisans who are usually part of its weekend market.

On Tuesday, Upper Valley Artist & Farmers Market announced on social media that they would be opening the Upper Valley Artist Mercantile shop, saying,

It’s finally happening! For two years, we contemplated opening an extension of Upper Valley Market in our very own brick-and-mortar. After planning, strategizing, and COVID putting a momentary pause on the dream, we are happy to announce that we will be opening @uppervalleymercantile at @substationep, and we couldn’t be more excited!

The Upper Valley Market crew have also teamed up with local designer Tatiana Fader of @urbanoak_designco to design the new space at The Substation in West El Paso.

The new shop, which is set to open later this summer, will feature local hand-crafted goods for home, body, apparel, art, and decor, making for a perfect gift shop as well.

The mercantile shop is looking to be open Wednesdays through Sundays tentatively and will be open year-round.

As the new Upper Valley Mercantile shop gets ready to open, they also encourage local artisans to reach out via DM on Facebook or Instagram for more information on how to get their products featured in-store.
