Phoenix Public Market Mural
November 9, 2010 by Candace Porth
Downtown Phoenix has a public market every Saturday morning and Wednesday evening where you can find a lot of local produce, food items, and arts and crafts. They also have their own mural on a building that faces the parking lot (the back of the Southwestern Litho building at 710 North 1st Street).
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find a signature and I don’t know anything about it. The mural seems to stress the sense of community which is what the Public Market is all about.
The Downtown Phoenix Public Market is a program of Community Food Connections, a 501 (c) 3 non-profit organization. “The Market marks the spot where community revitalization, economic development and a showcase for local small-scale agriculture and local artists and crafters intersect in the heart of the city…”
The Downtown Phoenix Public Market is at 721 North Central Avenue on the southeast corner of Central and McKinley Street. Look for the mural next time you’re there and check out the lizard.
