Location Description:

Suburban industrial parks don’t exactly gifted with an abundance of style. And the West 10th Place Business Park near 52nd Street and University Drive in the heart of Tempe’s workmanlike industrial neighborhoods are not immune to this rule, which is why we’re glad that hipster fashion mavens Cory Martinez and Ben Funke are there to make things more interesting with Meat Market Garment Factory. Contained in a 1,300 square-foot storage and office space is their exhaustive haul of thousands of articles of retro and throwback clothing and accessories that are sold on eBay and over at sister boutique Meat Market Vintage along Mill. And up until late 2011, the couple promoted live music shows for the public out of the rear of their normally private unit, until calling such things off for the foreseeable future. Lets hope the situation changes, as it was one of the most unique venues in Tempe.
