After making its successful round in the East Bay, Urban Air Market returns to the esteemed neighborhood of Dogpatch in San Francisco! We’re excited to return to a neighborhood we call one of our favorites in SF. The creative history in the neighborhood keeps bringing us back (think the once-booming industrial economy centered in the city’s central waterfront or the awesome nineties when Espirit headquarters was located in Dogpatch — pretty much the epicenter of fashion at that time!)
Urban Air Market: Dogpatch will take place on Sunday, August 16th surrounding Esprit Park at the intersection of Minnesota and 19th streets from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Our one-day street festival will feature 100+ one-of-a-kind local designers who produce sustainable goods including apparel, jewelry, and home decor.
We had a chance to catch up with a few Dogpatch residents to find out why they love Urban Air Market:
” I love the unique selection of vendors. These designers produce super high-quality products that are handcrafted, organic or sustainable. It’s great! – Marianna R., 42, homemaker
“UAM supports the local economy and compared to chain stores, locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share their revenue with the community by putting it back into the local economy! It’s great Urban Air Market can bring this to our community!” – Trevor W., 32, business professional
“I do my best to be eco-friendly by conserving water and energy, but always wanted to do more. After discovering Urban Air Market I realized I can shop for sustainable products all in one place. I’m doing my part in supporting the green movement and I encourage other to do so too!” – Ashley G., 28, beauty salon owner
We’re excited to enrich the Dogpatch neighborhood once again! In addition to shopping, guests can enjoy acoustic performances by local musicians including:
Diablo Jazz Company | 11am – 12pm
Geist Strings | 12pm – 1pm
PLS Trio | 1pm – 2pm
Foxtail Brigade | 2pm – 3pm
Steve Taylor-Ramirez| 3pm – 4pm
The Willy Roland Band | 4pm – 5pm
