Our mission is to foster relations among a diverse group of people, promote local artisans, encourage eco-friendly food production, and promote healthy living. In addition to providing a community gathering space, we seek to ensure access to healthy and locally grown foods for Fort Worth residents in the Downtown and Southside neighborhoods. We strive to encourage a healthy and creative neighborhood by providing a “food and arts experience” that is simple, engaging and fun. We also aspire to create a safe public center that provides a sense of place and belonging, while promoting security and happiness.
Located on the sidewalks around the old Sawyer Grocery Building in Southside Fort Worth, Southside Urban Market seeks to capture the essence of the traditional open-air market. We want to give our patrons a glimpse at how beautiful and community driven the southside of Fort Worth really is, by providing an outdoor space for life to happen. Currently along the corner of South Main and Daggett Street, our plan is to shape around our community -- as it expands, so too will the market expand to reach as many people as possible.
Southside Urban Market is community-owned and operated, which means we rely on community involvement and volunteer help. If you choose to help, either by volunteering time or making a donation, you will be supporting our cause to improve our city, spread our message, and further our mission. Your donation could go towards helping to compensate and encourage better product vendors, supplying tents and other supplies, or helping us increase awareness.
If you’re interested in helping, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or stop by on any Saturday.
Southside Urban Market is host to a diverse group of farmers, artisans, artists, musicians, and makers of all types who come together to share, inspire, encourage, collaborate and spread their craft throughout the community. While the weekly offering may change frequently, we promise that there will always be something for every person to enjoy. Stop by this Saturday to find out what makes our group of vendors so special!
