Vintage Indoor Swap Meet & Farmers Market
Sun City’s known for the fabulous castoffs of people who owned midcentury delights when they were brand-new. Scads more of our senior friends inhabit the far East Valley. When their belongings migrate into town, guess where they land first? Mesa. The city’s older parts feature stellar Mexican food, cheap commercial rents, teenagers, and other things Del Webb never dreamed of.
In a former bowling alley at 1300 South Country Club Drive rests the Arizona Event Center, which hosts, among other extravaganzas, the Vintage Indoor Swap Meet & Farmers Market (with beer!), presented by neighboring Retro Records from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, August 6, continuing on Sunday, August 7, and each weekend until further notice. For tickets, $2, visit www.arizonaeventcenter.com, or just show up.
