Fremont Saturday Market!!!!

I have been in the art business in one form or another for 8 years. I have tried to make a living at juried art festivals, consignment with local galleries, sales reps who swear they will make me a million and last but not least, wholesale trade shows and internet venues. I believe in diversification. However, the expense of most of these avenues far out ways the benefits. I always seem to come back to my roots, the local farmers/craft markets. My favorite by far is the Fremont Market.

Perhaps it is because I was born in Berkeley CA and the feel of Fremont is the same. Perhaps it is just the joyful crowd out absorbing the sun. What I do know is that this crowd loves to support it's local talent. They love to find hidden treasures and talk art for hours. I have sold my work at some of the top retail shows in the country and I find the people in Fremont more educated on art and eager to buy then in any other venue.

So to all those Fremont shoppers and art enthusiasts, I want to say from the bottom of my heart, Thank you for your support and knowledge!!!!!

See you next Sunday!
